Friday 13th...
Do you know why Friday 13 is considered a bad omen?

Because on October, Friday 13, 1307 the Knights Templar were rounded up and arrested by King Philip of France, under orders of the Papacy.
2. the Knights Templar were then tortured in horrendous ways by the Papacy thugs, and finally they were all burned alive.

This is the true story of Friday 13th.

from 1307 - 700 years ago...
3. in 1307 there was no United States of America.

it was 185 years before Christopher Columbus crossed the Atlantic Ocean to reach the American continent (1492).
4. 1307 was the same time period when Dante wrote the "Divine Comedy" in Florence.
and the same time period of the great painter Giotto.

Dante and Giotto knew each other.
There is a statue of Dante in New York City, in front of the Lincoln Center.
5. and there is much more to be said about the Knights Templar...
