Grand Master of the Knights Templar in François Raynouard’s tragedy

François Raynouard’s tragedy Les Templiers (1805) was probably among the first modern literary portrayals the Order of the Knights Templar. Here you can see the costume of Jacques de Molay, the grand master, one of the main characters in the play. The quote below the picture says:

Nous laisserons de nous une illustre mémoire,
Et qui meurt innocent, meurt toujours avec gloire

We shall leave illustrious memories of ourselves.
One who dies innocent always dies with glory.
