Another personal favorite, this was based on the legend of Montsegur, as it was told to me: Montsegur was a fortress/community in France, and its residents began to drift towards their own form of a mystic Christianity (the Cathars) considered to be heretical to Rome. Because of this, the Pope sent in the Templer Knights to burn it to the ground; the legend says that one woman, as the bearer of the Holy Grail, was allowed to leave.
