The Chinon Parchment
Here is our reproduction copy of the famous Chinon Parchment found in the Vatican Secret Archives in 2001 by Barbara Frale. The Chinon Parchment gives enlightening information on the secret rituals of the Knights Templar and according to many, absolved the leadership of the Templars from the charges brought against them.
The document is available in both English and Latin versions. When ordering, leave us a message for which version you prefer. If you would like to buy both versions, simply add quantity (2) and leave us a message telling us you want both English and Latin. If you buy both versions, we will give you a 25% discount that we will refund back to you after purchase.
Cardinal seals are attached to the bottom. These seals are made from wax and have been painstakingly researched to provide the correct image. The seals provided by the Vatican are reproduced from aged seals whose image cannot be readily defined. The document itself is joined together in three sections, forming an overall document of approx. 17" wide and 34" long.
Great memorabilia related to the Knights Templar and much more affordable than the copy the Vatican offered for several thousand dollars a few years back. Of course, ours is not exact to the original but will be a great addition to any group portraying the Knights Templar or for a wonderful conversation piece.
The document will be shipped rolled with red textured paper cuffs to hold it closed. Seals will be draped on top for shipment. To open, simply slide off cuffs and unroll. If you wish to frame this document, special framing will be needed to accommodate the seals.
For a limited time, we are offering a bonus Knights Templar seal pendant with the purchase of the Parchment. If you purchase two documents, we will include two pendants. Hurry, while supplies last!
Please note that this sale is for one copy of our Chinon Parchment reproduction in English OR Latin (You must enter quantity (2) and leave message to receive two copies). Buyers will receive a bonus pendant with each sale while supplies last. All other items shown in the photograph are for photographic prop purposes only and are not for sale. Thanks for looking!
