This mid-19th century image is from a larger engraving devoted to religious orders. I have seen the author identified as “H. Honeck after G. Heck.” The importance of the Knights Templar was clearly recognized by placing them in the middle of the page. Curiously, the Knight of Saint John is shown donning a uniforms from a much later time. At the time of writing, this engraving is available on Ebay.
