In the 11th century, a horde of Saracens invaded Asia Minor, including
Palestine, precluding the Christians from prostrating themselves before
Jesus' Sepulchre. Following that, Pope Urban II convened the Council
and proclaimed the holy war. Altogether, eight crusades were fought
from 1096 to 1270.
The first crusade ended in 1099 with the conquest of Jerusalem. Nine
years later, in 1108, nine knights established themselves in the old
Temple of Salomon. They formed the first unit of a sacerdotal - knightly
order and became the Knights Templars. They soon built up friendly relations
with a group of Imami Arabs (Twelver Shiites) and learnt the Secrets
and Mysteries of the Great Opera.
