The Order of the Knights Templar was not an ordinary order. It had the distinction of being a religious and a military order, a real revolution at the time. Benefiting from a direct link with the Pope, the order followed a rule of religious conduct, as was customary at the time. But it stood out from other Christian orders by its military vocation of protecting pilgrims and sacred sites the Holy Land. For the first time in history, clerics are allowed to kill in the name of God.
