Today is Friday, October 13, 2006, the 699th anniversary of the mass arrests of Jacques de Molay and his Knights Templar by French King Phillipe VI and Pope Clement V, which effectively shut down the open operations of the Knights.
Two weeks ago, I had planned to write a great essay on this event, and publish it here today.
Fortunately, Bro. Greg Stewart at the Masonic Traveler didn't forget, and neither did GrouchoGandhi. Both have written great articles on This Dark Day in History. Don't miss them.
"Jacques de Molay, tu es vengé!"
Image: Many people believe the image on the Shroud of Turin is that of Jacques de Molay, not Jesus. The Shroud has been carbon-dated to about the same time as de Molay's death.
