The Latin Rule was a document formed in the 12th century by Bernard de Clairvaux and Hugues de Payens to outline the perfect behavior of an ideal Templar, after their Order was publicly turned into the monastic and knightly order of the Knights Templar. It was originally known as "the Specific Behavior of the Templar Order", and drew upon the already-existing rules of the Order.

Drafted in 1128, the Rule originally consisted of 72 clauses, but was revised several times over the course of the next hundred years, eventually covering various subjects from the Order's hierarchy to the clothing worn by members. However, as many of the rules regard issues relating to the Order's earlier years, most of the mandates are considered more ceremonial than functional by modern Templars.
