The discovery of the only tomb of a Templar Master
The myth and a temporal and spiritual dispute make the Order of the Templars still popular and evocative in the collective imagination today. Some researchers have found an important trace: the discovery of the tomb of the Templar General Master Arnau de Torroja, who died at the end of the 12th century in Verona.
Nel 2017 il Presidente dei Catholic Templars, Mauro Giorgio Ferretti, discovered a sarcophagus at the Verona headquarters. The singular cross that accompanies it on the sides, a fiché cross, is the one that the ancient Templars reserved for their brothers who passed away.
The suspicion has led to a series of research and to what appears to be the greatest historical discovery regarding the Templars: the tomb is in all likelihood that of the ninth Master General of the Templars Arnau de Torroja. The tomb now needs an intervention to be isolated and placed in a special icon that makes it accessible to about 50 million fans in the world of the history of the Templars.
