Murphysboro Centuries, 14th secular


Philip IV, “the Fair”, 1285-1314
- when, in 1302, the Pope decreed that everyone had to be subject to him, Philip had some people beat up (he claimed they were trying to arrest him) the pope, who died soon after
- 1305 marked the beginning of the papacy in Avignon - 1307, Philip accused the Knights Templar of heresy, executed many of them and took all of their property (the Shroud of Turin appears?)
