[Histonet] In memoriam.

From:Rene J Buesa

On Friday 13 October 1307, exactly 699 years ago today,  the troops of the Capetian (French) king Philip IV ["le Bel"] with the benediction of the also French (Avignon) pope Clement V, imprisoned 15,000 members and the 23rd Grand Master of "The Poor Knights of Christ and of the Temple of Salomon" known as the Knights Templar.
  Both that king and pope owe their principal historical significance to that criminal act but The Knights Templar survived and now are known as "Ordo Supremus Militaris Temple Hierosolymitani" and keep their allegiance to the Roman pope.
  This brutal act on a Friday the 13 reafirmed some old Nordic / Icelandic traditions about this "evil filled" day that have also survived to our days!
