The Chinon Parchment was found in 2001 by Italian paleographer Barbara Frale.

It is dated August 17-20, 1308, and records interviews with Jacques de Molay, grandmaster of the Order, Raymbaud de Caron, preceptor of the commandaries in Outremer, Hugo de Perraud, preceptor of France, Geoffrey de Gonneville, preceptor of Aquitania and Poitou, and Geoffrey de Charny, preceptor of Normandy.

While we have your attention, we would like to remind you of our Emergency Ukraine Appeal

While BILLIONS of Dollars pours into western Ukraine, the beleaguered people in the east have been forgotten and abandoned to starve or freeze to death. WE WILL NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN! In conjunction with our brethren on the ground in the area I am asking you to dig deep and send your immediate financial support (as best you can) to our EMERGENCY UKRAINE WAR APPEAL!

Authorized by Pope Clement V, the authors were Berenger, cardinal priest of Saint Nereus and Achileus, Stephanus, cardinal priest of St Cyriac in Thermis, and Landolf, cardinal deacon of Saint’Angelo in Pescheria.
