|Jacques de Molay, the 23rd and the last Grand Master of the Knights Templar, is burned at the stake.
|Sunday, March 18th, 1314
- Quar nous navons volu ne volons le Temple mettre en aucune servitute se non tant come il hy affiert.
- Let evil swiftly befall those who have wrongly condemned us - God will avenge us.
- It is just that, in so terrible a day, and in the last moments of my life, I should discover all the iniquity of falsehood, and make the truth triumph. I declare, then, in the face of heaven and earth, and acknowledge, though to my eternal shame, that I have committed the greatest crimes but it has been the acknowledging of those which have been so foully charged on the order. I attest - and truth obliges me to attest - that it is innocent! I made the contrary declaration only to suspend the excessive pains of torture, and to mollify those who made me endure them. I know the punishments which have been inflicted on all the knights who had the courage to revoke a similar confession; but the dreadful spectacle which is presented to me is not able to make me confirm one lie by another. The life offered me on such infamous terms I abandon without regret.
