The Spear is Lost

 

From the moment the Spear of Antioch, the spear of Longinus, was found until the moment it disappeared from history after the battle of Ascalon, it was the rallying point of the First Crusade in the hands of Raymond of Toulouse. Raymond used the spear to lead the Crusaders out of the city of Antioch to victory against a much greater army.

Whoever Possesses It Will Rule the World

The Syrian city of Antioch almost proved the undoing of the first Crusade. After having struggled through Asia Minor, the Knights became bogged down in protracted siege of the city. Once they had captured it, they faced serious Muslim resistance. The finding of the Holy Lance which had pierced the side of the Christ, in June 1098, led to a revival of morale. Even after the Heathen was repulsed, it took until November 1098, before the final push for Jerusalem could be made.

The Templars and the Spear of Antioch

 

What’s our interest these days? Lots of research going on lately, but not in the American geopolitical world where you usually find us at the American Intelligence Media.

We have turned our attention to the mysteries of the Spear of Antioch. What we are finding is becoming a fascinating story involving the Knights Templar, early Christianity, and the documented trail of the spear.
