Statutes of the Order

The Order is governed by a set of Statutes - the first four Articles of the latest (1990) edition give fuller details of the Order's aims and objectives. The original is in Latin with French as the alternative language and there are some minor adjustments to the attached English text - shown in square brackets - to make the original more clearly understandable. In a few places some extra explanation is given. The original text within the document was not illustrated. NOTE: This latest translation was agreed between the Grand Prior General (em) of Sweden and The Grand Chaplain-General of England in Paris at the Commemoration there on the 18th March 2016 being the 702nd anniversary of the martyrdom of the last medieval Grand Master, Jacques de Molay.
