All this, however, was unacceptable to the French King. He quickly passed a new law, under which he had the Templars arrested. On October 13, 1309, they were accused in the courts with the following charges:

1. That during the reception ceremony, new brothers were required to deny Christ, God, The Virgin or the Saints on the command of those receiving them.

2. That the brothers committed various sacrilegious acts either on the cross or on an image of Christ.

3. That the receptors practiced obscene kisses on new entrants, on the mouth, navel or buttocks.

4. That the priests of the Order did not consecrate the host, and that the brothers did not believe in the sacraments.

5. That the brothers practiced idol worship of a cat or a head.

6. That the brothers encouraged and permitted the practice of sodomy.

7. That the Grand Master, or other officials, absolved fellow Templars from their sins.

8. That the Templars held their reception ceremonies and chapter meetings in secret and at night.

9. That the Templars abused the duties of charity and hospitality and used illegal means to acquire property and increase their wealth.37
