Miles

This word has two references of interest to us. 1. In pure Latin, miles means a soldier; but in Medieval Latin the word was used to designate the military knights whose institution began at that period. Thus a Knight Templar was called Miles Templarius, and a Knight Banneret, Miles Bannerettus. The pure Latin word eques, which Signifies a knight in Rome, was never used in that sense in the Middle ages (see Knighthood). 2. The Seventh Degree of the Rite of African Architects.
