Friday the 13th

Why is Friday the 13th a special day, aside from the movie ‘Friday the 13th’ with Jason Voorhees on it. There is historical reason as well that we should remember as well. The reason is back history. Back to 1307.

This is a cautionary tale of the Knights Templars and what can happen when people with too much power get upset at a group. For those who want to see this as a conspiracy that is your right to do so but I will provide the links to the pages that will help with the story.

The Knights Templar was created in 1119 in Jerusalem, Israel. They were originally known as Poor Knights of the Temple of Solomon. They were the Pope’s ‘warrior priest’ and they known to be the original banking system. They were known to have ‘secret’ initiation ceremonies. They had vast land holdings in Europe. They were known as the guardians of the ‘Holy Lands’. They had interest in the Mediterranean and the European markets. (http://blog.templarhistory.com/2010/03/templar-organizational-structure/ )

When Philip became King of France at the age of 17, France owed money to the Templars. The pope was Pope Clement V  at the time. The head of the Templars was De Molay. When Philip wasn’t able to manipulate it to where he wouldn’t have to pay the Templars back Philip went to the other end of the of the extreme.

Information was given to the Pope and Philip and they decided it was time to remove the Templars. On October 13, 1307 the orders were opened and Philips troops went to all the Templars holdings and they were arrested. Grand Master De Molay was in Paris and had gotten arrested as well.  (http://blog.templarhistory.com/2010/08/brethren-persecuted-part-1/ )

Most of the Templars had gotten away along with their funds. When De Molay was burned alive after retracting his confession saying that it was gotten under torture. He made a statement that came true.

The Curse:

It is said that Jacques de Molay cursed King Philip IV of France and his descendants fas he burned. Folklorists and historians believe the story of the shouted curse appears to be a combination of words uttered by a different Templar, and those of Jacques de Molay. warning the pope that, within a year and a day, he and Philip IV would be obliged to answer for their crimes in God’s presence.

Philip and Clement V (20 April 1314) both died within a year of Molay’s execution. Philip died in a hunting accident.
