The reasons for the trial and dissolution of the Order of the Temple in the years 1307–12 are still debated among scholars. Many argue that the underlying cause of the Order’s demise was the government of King Philip IV of France and his ministers’ policies, rather than faults within the Order itself. The purpose of this article is not to consider the origins of the proceedings against the Templars but their aftermath: what became of the surviving Templars after the dissolution of their Order? The article draws on the research of leading scholars on the Templars, including Alan Forey and Alain Demurger, and also draws in my own research on the Trial of the Templars in Britain and Ireland.
