At Montwimer in Champagne, Robert le Bougre burns about a hundred and eighty heretics whose trials had all had begun and ended within one week. Montwimer is — or was — the oldest Cathar community in central France.

It was here that the earliest recorded French Cathars were found: 1022, when thirteen Cathars were burned to death by King Robert the Pious. This day's executions will mark the end of the Cathar heresy in central France.
