    Relenting to Phillip's demands, Pope Clement then issued the papal bull Pastoralis Praeeminentiae, which instructed all Christian monarchs in Europe to arrest all Templars and seize their assets. Pope Clement called for papal hearings to determine the Templars' guilt or innocence, and once freed of the Inquisitors' torture, many Templars recanted their confessions.

    Around 1119 A.D., King Baldwin II of Jerusalem agreed to grant the request to form a monastic order for the protection of the pilgrims travelling to the Holy Land in Jerusalem. This request of this new order came from a French knight Hugues de Payens and his relative Godfrey de Saint-Omer. The Order took the name of Poor Knights of Christ and the Temple of Solomon, or "Templar" knights.
