Chivalric Orders

Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem

The Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem has been assigned the chapel of Saint Clara and Saint Catherine (also known as that of Saint Stephen).

Created after the First Crusade in 1099 by Godfrey of Bouillon, the Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem is an association of Christian faithful, established in accordance with ecclesiastical law; the Holy Father, the Order's sovereign, has entrusted them with the special mission of providing economically for the Church in the Holy Land and reinforcing the practice of a Christian life.


Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George

Under the patronage of Saint George, the Order has been granted liturgical use of the chapel of the Visitation and Saint George, located in the ambulatory of the Cathedral. 

According to tradition, the Sacred Military Constantinian Order of Saint George was founded by Emperor Constantine the Great. The Order was placed under the Rule of Saint Basil by Pope Saint Leo the Great in 456. In 1190 Isaac II Flavio Comneno, Emperor of the Eastern Roman Empire, granted its statutes.

Under the Grand Master, HRH Prince Carlo, Duke of Calabria, the Order has clearly reaffirmed its equestrian-religious nature and its mission: Glorification of the Cross, propagation of the Faith and defense of the Holy Roman Church.

According to the statutes of the Order, Constantinian Knights and Dames must not only live in keeping with the Christian ideal, but they must also participate in all demonstrations which contribute to the exaltation of religious principles and cooperate through all means to recover the practice of a Christian life, focusing especially on areas of social action, hospital assistance and charity work.
