Council Claraval

When we review everything that happened so far, with respect to the relationship or linkage of Bernardo de Claraval with the order of the Temple, we cannot but give Intuit a very direct relationship, although it is somewhat hidden, especially in esoteric and initiatory aspects of nature. One aspect that will be dealt with later, but that, now, can pass unnoticed, because, after all the maneuvers we’ve seen that Bernardo was conducted, to achieve its objectives with regard to the order of the Temple, is necessary a letter of King Balduino de Jerusalen, requesting their support before the Church. That letter of request for help was really necessary, or was simply the excuse that justified defense of the Knights Templar, by Bernardo de Claraval before the Church? Be that as it may, the truth is that Bernardo de Claraval, used all the means at its disposal to achieve is to convene the Council of Troyes, which would take place the day of the feast of Saint-Hilaire of the year 1128 (such as literally stated the prologue of the Templar rule), in the French city of the same name, which others was seat of the Court of the County of Champagne, with the aim that in the Council was finally adopted the order of the Knights Templar. The Council of Troyes, which was presided over by Cardinal and papal legate, Mateo de Albano, was attended by large number of prelates French, assisting among others: two archbishops, ten bishops and seven Abbots (among which the parent House of the Cistercian Abbot would be: Esteban Harding), as well as a varied representation of ecclesiastical characters and members of the nobility. Thanks to the many influences that had Bernardo de Claraval (do not forget that it was Earl Hugo de Champane domains), and to be engaged in various discussions, just knowing expose rightly principles and first services of the Knights Templar, rightly responding to all the questions that they addressed him, did that after several weeks of deliberationsthe order of the temple was officially adopted with great enthusiasm by the Council of Troyes, to Hugo de Payens was appointed Grand Master of the order.
