Unlike the initial degrees conferred in a regular Masonic Lodge , which in most Regular Masonic jurisdictions only require a belief in a Supreme Being regardless of religious affiliation,  the Knights Templar is one of several additional Masonic Orders in which membership is open only to Freemasons who profess a belief in Christianity. The word “United” in its full title indicates that more than one historical tradition and more than one actual order are jointly controlled within this system.
However, it does not claim any direct lineal descent from the original Templar order. The earliest documented link between Freemasonry and the Crusades is the oration of the Chevalier Ramsay. This claimed that European Freemasonry came about from an interaction between crusader masons and the Knights Hospitaller. He also claimed to have met two of the “unknown superiors” who directed all of masonry, one of whom was Prince Charles Edward Stuart.

In presenting to the fraternity a work on the Principles of Masonic Law, it is due to those for whom it is intended, that something should be said of the design with which it has been written, and of the plan on which it has been composed. It is not pretended to present to the craft an encyclopedia of jurisprudence, in which every question that can possibly arise, in the transactions of a Lodge, is decided with an especial reference to its particular circumstances.
Were the accomplishment of such an herculean task possible, except after years of intense and unremitting labor, the unwieldy size of the book produced, and the heterogeneous nature of its contents, so far from inviting, would rather tend to distract attention, and the object of communicating a knowledge of the Principles of Masonic Law, would be lost in the tedious collation of precedents, arranged without scientific system, and enunciated without explanation.
When I first contemplated the composition of a work on this subject, a distinguished friend and Brother, whose opinion I much respect, and with whose advice I am always anxious to comply, unless for the most satisfactory reasons, suggested the expediency of collecting the decisions of all Grand Masters, Grand Lodges, and other masonic authorities upon every subject of Masonic Law, and of presenting them, without commentary, to the fraternity.
Another inconvenience which would have attended the adoption of such a method is, that the decisions of different Grand Lodges and Grand Masters are sometimes entirely contradictory on the same points of Masonic Law. The decree of one jurisdiction, on any particular question, will often be found at variance with that of another, while a third will differ from both.
It represents an early functional sword, adapted for ceremonial use at a later date. Of special interest is the cross-guard, whose ends terminate in Corinthian order.

The mystery of a relic found on a rocky slope of Grand Mesa 45 years ago took a new turn when researchers declared it not to be a piece of a cross brought by Spanish explorers. Instead, the copper plate likely came from the sheath of a Masonic sword about years ago, said David Bailey, chief curator for the Museum of Western Colorado in Grand Junction. The flat piece of metal, a little smaller than a candy bar, was found at an elevation of about 10, feet in The find was in proximity of the Spanish Trail, forged by Mexican and American explorers and traders through Colorado to California beginning in the s, and the earlier Ute Trail, an Indian passage.
Scholars examined the metal shortly after it was originally found. They deemed it likely to be the piece of the 17th-century Spanish cross, because of its religious markings. The item was not made of bronze but pure copper, a metal that is easily shaped. It also was hollow-back and had tabs that once attached it to a scabbard, Bailey said. Masonic Knights Templar is an international philanthropic fraternity of tradesmen, taking its name from the famous Christian military order that existed from to If the relic dates back years, it would be far from any Masonic Temple.
The region, 30 miles southeast of Grand Junction, was not settled by whites until the s. Anita Clark was intrigued by the new finding, almost as much as when she and her late husband, Keith, found the relic near their ranch in
