(some foxing). Madrid: Diego Díaz De La Carrera, 1662. First Edition. A history of the Knights of Alcántara, one of the three most ancient orders of Spain, all of which were originally founded as military religious orders to fight against the Moors. They were instituted about 1156 by Don Sanchez and Don Gomez de Barrientos, and confirmed as a religious order of knighthood under Benedictine rule by Pope Alexander III in 1177. Until about 1213 they were known as the Knights of St. Julian de Pereiro, changing their name when entrusted with the defence of the city of Alcántara in the territory of Estremadura. For some time they were subject in some degree to the grand master of the kindred order of Calatrava. The influence and wealth of the order gradually increased until the Knights were almost as powerful as the sovereign. In 1495, the grand mastership of Alcántara was invested in the Catholic King, Ferdinand of Aragon; this arrangement was ratified by Pope Alexander VI, and, in 1523, declared permanent by Adrian VI. Bound herewith is a collection of the various papal privileges granted to the order. The Knights of Alcántara ceased to exist as a spiritual body in 1835. Goldsmith, BM STC Spanish Books, A102-103.
