Chicago: 3 Part Lecture on Templars Begins Sunday 10/12

Chicago brethren and Templar enthusiasts take note: Monsignor Robert M. Cokinis will present a three part lecture series about the Knights Templar, "Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow" beginning this Sunday, October 12th, at 5PM. The series will be held at the Aurora Masonic Temple (Temple Hill Plaza) at 104 S. Lincoln Avenue.

Cokinis is the Presiding Bishop of L'Eglise Gnostique Apostolique of North America, and is a member of the Portuguese Order of the Poor Knights of Christ of the Temple of Solomon. He has lectured on Martinism and Gnosticism at the Theosophical Society in Wheaton, Illinois.

According to a story in the Beacon News:

The first in the series, titled Templars of Legend and Reality, will analyze the phenomenon of the Templars popularity in the literature of Europe over 700 years and the Order's more recent portrayal in the movies especially the Da Vinci Code and National Treasure.

A $20 donation at the door will go to benefit the Temple's restoration project.
