#Temple#Church was built in the late 12th Century between #FleetStreet and the River #Thames by the Knights Templar as their order expanded in numbers and influence.
The power of the order influenced its surrounds - as seen in the area around it becoming known as the Temple, the naming of Temple Bar near St. Paul's, and Temple tube station. Temple Church is now used by two Inns of Court (Inner Temple and Middle Temple) and is one of the most #historic and #beautiful churches in #London .
The Temple was King John’s London headquarters in the months before Magna Carta, and three of the Charter’s heroes were buried here – the effigies of two survive to this day.

The Arsacid dynasty or Arshakuni (Armenian: Արշակունի Arshakuni), ruled the Kingdom of Armenia from 54 to 428. The dynasty was a branch of the Arsacid dynasty of Parthia. Arsacid Kings reigned intermittently throughout the chaotic years following the fall of the Artaxiad dynasty until 62 when Tiridates I secured Arsacid dynasty of Parthia rule in Armenia. An independent line of Kings was established by Vologases II (Vagharsh II) in 180. Two of the most notable events under Arsacid rule in Armenian history were the conversion of Armenia to Christianity by Gregory the Illuminator in 301 and the creation of the Armenian alphabet by Mesrop Mashtots in c. 405. The volatile political reality of Armenia in the second half of the 1st century BCE is reflected in the short reigns and frequent change of monarchs of the ruling Artaxiad (Artashesian) dynasty: nine rulers from 30 BCE to the first decade of the 1st century CE. The decline of the Artaxiads was in part due to the internal factions which had been created by the nobility splitting into either pro-Roman or pro-Parthian factions when the kingdom was caught in regional power politics. The reign of the Arsacids of Armenia marked the predominance of Iranianism in the country.
