One of the more notable, unique artifacts from our newest exhibit, Freemasonry: A History Hidden in Plain Sight, is the Knights Templar uniform and sword. These pieces are highly ceremonial in appearance and recall uniforms of long ago. This particular uniform came from the Bruce County Museum and was worn by Carl Robinson of Ailsa Craig (northwest of London, Ontario) in the 1920’s. The sword came from another Ontario member named Noble Hunter.
This artifact and exhibit is on display at the Grande Prairie Museum until Oct 31. The feature has been greatly augmented with local contributions from the Lake Saskatoon and Grande Prairie Lodges to give the exhibit a local perspective and visitors have been giving enthusiastic reviews.
The Masonic Lodge is a fraternal organization that only requires its members to have a belief in a supreme being. The Knights Templar is an affiliated order with the same requirement, but its members must also profess a belief in Christianity. Both organizations provide charitable assistance in their communities. The full name of the Knights Templar is The United Religious, Military and Masonic Orders of the Temple and of St. John of Jerusalem, Palestine, Rhodes and Malta. It is not connected with the Knight Templar of medieval times.
