Trial by Fire

St. Dominic had devoted his life to preaching and defending the faith.  Most notably was his preaching against the Albigenses Heresy in France.    During the course of his preaching he was challenged by followers of the heresy.  

A trial by fire was arranged whereby a thesis written by St. Dominic and a disclamatory document written by one of the heretics were thrown into a fire.  Miraculously, St. Dominic's document survived the fire.  This lead to the conversion of many of the heretics.
