I am very puzzled how and where the author of this book got his research from. As he states Jacques de Molay is the same person who is on the Turin Shroud.
My research from Wikipedia, tells me de Molay and de Charney were slowly burned to death, refusing all offers of pardon for retraction, and bearing their torment with a composure which won for them the reputation of martyrs among the people, who reverently collected their ashes as relics."
So how can it possibly be Jacques de Molay on the Shroud of Turin????
