You may remember that in my blog post, History Heaven, I told you I had been given some pages of a translated history of this area, specifically about Cajarc. It's a treasure trove of information, and I enjoyed reading it. Well, most of it. I read something rather shocking about La Capelette, the remaining part of the chapel for the medieval leper colony located here. Let me quote from my translated history:" In 1321, after a meeting in Toulouse of delegates from 60 leper colonies in the South West, the lepers decided to kill the Christians and steal their goods. The plot was uncovered, the lepers accused of having poisoned the fountains and violence ensued. At Cajarc, as elsewhere, the crowds burned them alive in their leper-house of which only the choir of the chapel remains."
They did what:!?!
This is the plaque that tells about the chapel. No mention of burning people. I can see why they left that part out.
