"An investigation into the decline and fall of the mighty Knights Templar and their last Grand Master by one of France's greatest medieval scholars." "Between 1307 and 1310 King Philip the Fair of France and Pope Clement V brought to trial one of the most powerful institutions of the medieval world: the crusading Order of the Knights of the Temple. Jacques de Molay was then its Grand Master. Alain Demurger tells the history of Molay's life as a crusader and of the dramatic years of his leadership." "With the fall of Acre in 1291 the crusaders lost their last stronghold in Palestine and the Order of the Temple much of its reason for being. Jacques de Molay, elected Grand Master the following year, sought to revive its crusading spirit. But an alliance with the Mongols went wrong, and when their garrison on the Syrian island of Ruad fell to the Mamluks the Templars were discredited. The scene was set for dissolution. Molay was arrested in France in 1307; three years later fifty-four knights were burnt at the stake in Paris; and in 1312 the pope, urged by the king, suppressed the Order through all of Europe." "The Temple had been found guilty of heresy, of scandalous rituals in the initiation of new members. The Inquisitor of France, King Philip's chaplain, used torture to get the confessions and the judgement of history has been to dismiss them. Alain Demurger reopens the case. He describes the complex events surrounding the arrests and trials, re-examines the transcripts of the inquisitions, and looks closely at the circumstances of Molay's own devastating confession. He ends his account of one of the most gruesome episodes of European history with a measured verdict."--Jacket

La persécution des templiers : journal, 1305-1314 by Alain Demurger( Book )

4 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"L'"Affaire du Temple" est l'un des plus intrigants procès de l'Histoire. C'est celui qu'un roi de France, Philippe le Bel, fit à un ordre religieux militaire, international et puissant, né pour défendre la Terre sainte et, à travers lui, à un pape sur lequel il voulait asseoir son autorité. Accusés d'hérésie, les templiers de France furent arrêtés et emprisonnés le 13 octobre 1307, et leurs biens saisis. Interrogés et torturés, ils firent des aveux stupéfiants qui contribuèrent à leur chute. Ce journal relate le quotidien d'une affaire qui s'étend sur cinq ans, jusqu'à la suppression de l'ordre en 1312 au concile de Vienne, et se prolonge encore deux ans avec la mise à mort de Jacques de Molay et de Geoffroy de Charnay en 1314. Il fait sortir de l'ombre plusieurs centaines de templiers, certains ayant avoué, mais beaucoup d'autres ayant nié ou s'étant rétractés. Une plongée en abîme qui donne une vision saisissante de cette persécution implacable et de la résistance, trop sous-estimée, qu'ont opposée les templiers."--P. [4] of cover
