    Notes 
    • About 1018 the 'Manichaean' teachings appeared in Aquitaine; this sectnot only rejected both baptism and the Cross but apparently observedstrict asceticism. Ten years later, ten of the canons of the Church ofthe Holy Cross at Orléans were accused of being 'Manichaeans' and ofworshipping the devil. These canons, which included the confessor ofQueen Constance, rejected the sacraments of the Church and denied thehuman birth of Christ together with the reality of his Passion andResurrection. Brought to trial before the King, Robert 'the Pious', andan assemblage of bishops, these heretics were consigned to the flames,yet not before Queen Constance struck out the eye of her formerconfessor.
