Ordo Militia Templi

Some liturgical images take on a certain iconic and timeless value by virtue of their setting. I often find this to be the case when looking at images of Masses within Romanesque settings in particular.

I mention this because I had a similar response to the following photo which was sent to us this past weekend from the Chiesa del Castello della Magione in Poggibonsi, Tuscany, which is associated with the Poor Knights of Christ (Militia Templi - Christi pauperum Militum Ordo)

It is not clear to me that this is a photo of a recent liturgical event, but I wanted to share it nonetheless.
