Definition
an order of medieval knights that existed for two centuries after the First Crusade who helped to protect Jerusalem and European pilgrims to Jerusalem
  • Its ranks were filled with gentlemen who felt the stirrings of martial impulse, and sought to establish a kind of College of Arms, where, as in an association of Knights Templars, they might learn the science, and, so far as peaceful exercise would teach them, the practices of war.
