    With years of war straining the royal coffers, French king Philip IV began targeting vulnerable sources of wealth for confiscation: first, he ordered the expulsion of the kingdom's Jews (21 Jun 1306) and then leveled charges of heresy and sodomy at the Templars. Mass arrests were carried out on 13 Oct 1307 or Friday the 13th. This included their Grand Master, James of Molay, who was in France to consult with the king and pope on a new crusade. Pope Clement V succeeded in slowing the rush to judgment by calling for inquisitions in the other Catholic kingdoms where reception was, at best, lukewarm; however, Philip would not be denied. After the pope closed the order in 1312, its properties were parceled, its members packed off to other orders and the most visible leaders imprisoned. Molay and Geoffrey of Charney renounced their confessions and were burned at the stake on 18 Mar 1314.
