Jacques de Molay The Last Templar

Exactly seven hundred years have elapsed since the death of Jacques de Molay, the last Grand Master of the Order of the Knights Templar.
Falsely accused of heresy, the order was suppressed in 1308, the knights imprisoned, tortured and slain, their property confiscated.
The Order of the Poor Fellow Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon, founded in around 1118, owed its name to the Dome of the Rock, a Muslim sanctuary built over the site of the biblical Temple of Jerusalem and known to the crusaders as the “Templum Domini”.
The Templars are renowned for the economic and cultural advances that they helped to spread throughout Europe, and are still held up today as shining examples of honesty, integrity and loyalty.
The commonly held perception of the Templars is that they represent something good and just that can be sacrificed to mere economic interests.

The execution pyre was lit in Paris, on an island in the Seine known as the Ile des Juifs near Notre Dame, on 18 March in the Year of Our Lord 1314. A small plaque still marks the spot today.
The story goes that, before dying, Jacques de Molay warned King Philippe le Bel and Pope Clement V that they would “answer for their crimes in God’s presence” before the year was out.
The fact that both Philippe le Bel and Clement V did indeed die within the year only served to bolster the belief that Jacques de Molay was a victim of injustice and that his curse had been effective.
The curse is said to have hounded the French royal house right down to the execution of Louis XVI, when the executioner on the scaffold told the sovereign that he was a Templar!

The pen is inspired by the Templars’ legendary white surcoat emblazoned with a red cross.
The Templar helm, hauberk and crest are reproduced with the finesse of the goldsmith’s art.
The Templars were a military order, thus the pen’s finish is inspired by appropriately aged steel and iron.

The Templar’s historical seal showing two knights on a single horse, symbolising their poverty and their dual nature as monks and soldiers, has been built into the ring.
Nor could the set be considered complete without the Templar sword.
A leather wrap with a thong to lace it serves to protect this valuable writing tool.
