The Larmenius Charter

31 March 2010 No Comment

While history certainly shows that the Templars were dissolved in 1312 with the papal bull Vox in Excelso, there exists a manuscript – largely discredited by historians – which purports to be a list of the Grand Masters of the Templars following the death of Jacques de Molay in 1314. This document, referred to as the Larmenius Charter or Carta Transmissionis, suggests that de Molay transferred the reins of the Order to Jean-Marc Larmenius while in prison. According to those who believe the legitimacy of the document and its claims, Larmenius carried on the duties of Grand Master in secret until the Order was made public in 1804.
