Saint Felix Laragais
The village is also known under the name of Saint-Félix-de-Caraman. In 1167 the Cathars gather here at the Synod of St. Felix , chaired by the priest Nicetas bishop of the Bogomils . He consoled Cathar bishops of France (north), Lombardy , Toulouse , Albi , Agen and Carcassonne .
Sicard Alaman (circa 1210 - 10 June 1275 ) was a knight , lord of Saint-Sulpice (Tarn) , and Bonnafous (currently Castelnau de Lévis ).
He was minister of the Count of Toulouse Raymond VII , and regent of the County of Toulouse in September 1249 a majority of the Countess Jeanne .
In 1235, Sicard Alaman receives the fief of Raymond VII, Count of Toulouse with permission to erect a fortification. He built the bastide of Castelnau-de-Bonnafous , former name of the castle.
He married Beatrix de Toulouse-Lautrec , Lady Graulhet .
Lieutenant of the Albigensians of Toulouse, the Rouergue , the Quercy and the Agen .
In 1250 , he matte rebellion Castle Najac who had been driven by the fact that the death of Raymond VII , in 1248 , Alphonse de Poitiers , brother of Louis IX became owner of the castle.
It is also the founder of new towns (or country houses ) of Bouloc of Montastruc la Advisor in 1241 , and Saint-Félix-Lauragais in 1245 .
William or William de Nogaret (born about 1260 in Saint-Felix de Lauragais - died in March 1313 in Paris ), he died in Paris. This is his youngest son William II inherited the Lordship of Manduel. French jurist, a native of Languedoc , who became advisor to the King of France Philip IV , his Guard Seal , and was from 1306 the real architect of the royal policy.
In September 1307 , just days after the issuance by the Royal Chancery of the order of arrest of the Templars (he probably wrote himself), Nogaret obtained the position of the Seal Guard , where he succeeded Pierre Belleperche . He secretly prepares the arrest of the Templars, the Temple's destruction and confiscation of property.
In this context, he launched a smear campaign to prepare public opinion. On Friday, October 13, 1307 (opinion keep in suspicion on Friday 13th), at dawn, to the Office of Lauds, he arrested, imprisoned, tortured the Templars. Then he orchestrates their trial by joining testimony under horrific torture, false testimony, hirelings, sometimes grotesque.
On 27 April 1311 , Guillaume de Nogaret obtained from Clement V 's absolution for the protagonists of the conflict with Boniface VIII , as Benedict XI was denied him. It was in exchange, as repentance, to commit to moving to the next crusade, and visit a number of places of pilgrimage in France and Spain , but he never did.
He died in 1313 making anachronistic curse would have ruled on the stake, according to Maurice Druon , the master of the Knights Templar , Jacques de Molay : "Within a year, I quote to appear in court of God ... "Since Jacques de Molay was burned in 1314 . In this regard, it should be noted that Jacques de Molay, Grand Master of the Order, was imprisoned and tortured for 7 years bad luck (hence the term remains today). He dismisses his confession obtained under duress and is burned alive as all his brothers before him March 18, 1314. But perhaps there was an error on the name of William, because William Humbert (also known as William of Paris), Grand Inquisitor named dominicain of France, and confessor to the king from 1305 to 1314, who taught with William of Nogaret the trial of the Templars between 1307 and 1314, was present and we lose track of him in 1314 (rumors of assassination).
