n the Seal we see two knights riding one horse, and the text "Sigillum Militum Christi" surrounding the image. The image stems from two sources; firstly the poverty vow of the knights, with two knights economically riding one horse, and secondly, from the knight carrying his wounded comrade from battle. Later the seal also was taken to mean the alleged homosexual practices of the Order. We rest the case and let each reader take the meaning he or she prefers.
