The Origins of the Templars: sessions at the International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds, July 2019

I’ve organised four conference sessions on the Origins of the Military-Religious Orders (the Knights Templar, the Knights Hospitaller and the Teutonic Order). These will take place at the International Medieval Congress at the University of Leeds, 1-4 July 2019. Click on the links for details:

The Origins of the Military-Religious Orders, I: Beginnings in the East [Session No: 514]
The Origins of the Military-Religious Orders, II: Origins in Europe [Session No: 614]
The Origins of the Military-Religious Orders, III: Patrons, Agency, and Growth [Session No: 714]
The Origins of the Military-Religious Orders, IV: Foundation, Re-Foundation, and Recreation [Session No: 814]

These sessions will all take place on Tuesday 2 July, between 9am and 6pm. It will be a full and fascinating day!

(Meanwhile, I’ll be giving my own paper on Thursday: ‘A Queen Alone: Queen Sybil of Jerusalem between Hattin and Acre, 1187-1189’, in a session on New Approaches to the Third Crusade, II [Session No: 1614].)
