The first of June 1310, in Paris, the heart of medieval
culture, to the mill the Saint-Antoine, after the burning of
54 Templars sentenced for heresy, Margherite la Porete was
burnt alive as heretic together with his book "The miroir
des simples âmes" (the mirror of simple souls), of which
the Church ordered the destruction.............
The originality of the "Mirror" is to devise a new form of
self-consciousness, inconceivable for a woman in this dark
period, which inevitably will lead to individual freedom,
characteristic of modern culture. Marguerite proclaim with
force and not give up his ideas, thereby sacrificing his own
life at stake.
