The Templars, monks and soldiers all, where many things, including guardians of the faith, guardians of the Holy Land, and guardians of its pilgrims. The Templar order, of religious and military background, was founded in Jerusalem in the year 1118 by nine crusader knights, under the official denomination of Order of the Poor Knight of Christ. Later they were known by the Knight of Solomons Temple denomination after establishing themselves in King Solomons ancient temple. The Pope Inocencio II recognized the order of the Templar in the year 1139. The stamp of the Templar and emblem of the order is two knights mounted on the same horse (representing the duel vocation of the order – religious and military, as well as their originally poor status) with the inscription in Latin sigilum militum Xpisti (Seal of the Soldiers of Christ).
