On October 13, , the King ordered a dramatic arrest of all Templars in France. The Pope , Clement V, in November 22, , under pressure from the King, also issued a papal decree , called Pastoralis praceminentiae, ordering all monarchs of the Christian faith to arrest all Templars and confiscate their lands in the name of the Pope and the Church.
Though the order went out to England , Iberia , Germany , Italy and Cyprus , the leader, Templar Grand Master Jacques de Molay , Geoffrey de Charney and many other Templars were in France, and, under the orders of the French king, were arrested and severely tortured until they confessed to the series of horrible crimes of which they were accused.
After that Pierre de Bologna was never seen again and Renaud de Provins was sentenced to life imprisonment. Initial charges[ edit ] Geoffroi de Charney, along with the other Templars in France were arrested on October 13, The first was the renouncement of Christ and spitting on the cross during initiation into the Order.
The second was the stripping of the man to be initiated and the thrice kissing of that man by the Preceptor on the navel, posteriors and the mouth. The third was telling the neophyte novice that unnatural lust was lawful and indulged in commonly. The fourth was that the cord worn by the neophyte day and night was "consecrated" by wrapping it around an idol in the form of a human head with a great beard, and that this idol was adored in all chapters.
The fifth was that the priests of the order did not consecrate the host in celebrating Mass. Many of these charges were made against Boniface before his capture, escape and eventual death shortly thereafter in The lists of articles 86 to  would add many other charges.
They were immediately found guilty of being relapsed heretics , for which the punishment was death. This effectively silenced the other Templars. Philip continued to pressure and threaten the Pope to officially disband the Order, and things came to a dramatic end in with the public execution by burning of leader Jacques de Molay, and Geoffroi de Charney. His exact day of death is disputed by scholars.
This source records his death as follows: Note: The day varies by one day, not unusual for the chronicles of the Middle Ages : "The cardinals dallied with their duty until March 19, , when, on a scaffold in front of Notre Dame, de Molay , Geoffroi de Charney, Master of Normandy , Hugues de Peraud , referred to as a visitor of France, and Godefroi de Gonneville , Master of Aquitaine , were brought forth from the jail in which for nearly seven years they had lain, to receive the sentence agreed upon by the cardinals, in conjunction with the Archbishop of Sens and some other prelates whom they had called in.
Considering the offences which the culprits had confessed and confirmed, the penalty imposed was in accordance with rule—that of perpetual imprisonment. The affair was supposed to be concluded when, to the dismay of the prelates and wonderment of the assembled crowd, de Molay and Geoffroi de Charney arose. They had been guilty, they said, not of the crimes imputed to them, but of basely betraying their Order to save their own lives. It was pure and holy; the charges were fictitious and the confessions false.
Hastily the cardinals delivered them to the Prevot of Paris , and retired to deliberate on this unexpected contingency, but they were saved all trouble. The King was furious and they were both pronounced relapsed heretics to be burned without a further hearing; the facts were notorious and no formal judgment by the papal commission need be waited for. That same day, by sunset, a pile was erected on a small island in the Seine , the Ile des Juifs , near the palace garden.
Such stories became legend among the people, whose sense of justice had been scandalized by the whole affair. Geoffrey of Paris was "apparently an eye-witness, who describes Molay as showing no sign of fear and, significantly, as telling those present that God would avenge their deaths".
The novels were also adapted into two French television miniseries in and Bouquet, XXI. CorneL Zantfliet ann.
