THE CHARTER 2018-03-06T18:35:04+00:00

The Charter of Seborga“, is a document approved by the General Chapter on August 20, 2012, the anniversary of the death of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, protector of the Order.

The Charter, which has an unlimited temporal validity, defines and fixes the central and immovable pillars that govern the Order. It binds for the future and in a perpetual manner the Knights, the Priories, the Chapters as well as all those who will be the spiritual heirs of the Order, from this day on until the end of time.

With its XXXIII articles, the Charter constitutes the identity of the Order and guarantees its survival over the centuries since, as history teaches, whenever the Order has moved away from these inspiring principles, suffering, turbulence and division have arisen.
