As the fire consumed him, the indomitable will that burned in his eyes was more fearsome that the flames. Before his spirit left his charred body, he proclaimed for all to hear:
“In the name of the Order of the Knights of the Temple, I curse you, Philippe De Bel, and your buffoon Pope, and I call on God Almighty to have you both join me before His seat within the year, to suffer His judgment and burn forever in the furnaces of Hell…!
