                                  BREAKING NEWS

We are proud to inform you that In the hands of the the Grand Prior today we have a copy of what is known as  the " Edinburgh Rule " written by Johannes Michaelensis who is thought to be Scottish, this is the 10th one in existance and was written in 1128.

John Michael ( His proper name ) was the scribe of the document by order of the council and of the venerable father Bernard Abbot of Clairvaux as the Edinburgh Rule.

The Order of the Temple was in 1128 given a set of Rules deliberated over at a meeting referred to as the council of Troyes by Saint Bernard of Clairvaux. Nine copies of these hand written rules have known to survive and are still in existence up to this day. They are referred to as the primitive rule, the Latin rule, the French rule, and the Catalan Rule (Catalan rule being written at a later date).
