This fifth of eight sessions in commemoration of the arrest of the Templars in 1307 considers the milieu and the course of the trial of the Templars in France, where the trial began and was concluded. The trial of Bishop Guichard of Troyes has been viewed by some historians as a parallel to the trial of the Templars; the second paper considers how information about the trial was distributed and received within France, while the third considers the role of the University of Paris.
