Baron De Laubardemont:
There are 6,000 Christian souls waiting for you in the marketplace. Tell me, do you love the Church?
Grandier:
Not today.
Baron De Laubardemont:
Do you want to see it grow more powerful, more benevolent, until it embraces every human soul on this earth? Then help us to achieve this great purpose. Go to the marketplace a penitent man. Confess, and by confessing, proclaim to those thousands that you have returned to the Church's arms. By going to the stake unrepentant, you do God a disservice, you give hope to unebelievers. Such an act can mine the very foundations of the Church. You are no longer important. Think: are you any longer important?
Grandier:
I was never important.
Baron De Laubardemont:
Then make a last supreme gesture to the Catholic faith.

Transcript:
Tell me,
do you love the Church?
Not today.
Do you want
to see it grow more powerful?
More benevolent, until it embraces
every human soul on this earth?
Then help us to achieve
this great purpose.
Go to the marketplace a penitent man.
Confess.
And by confessing,
proclaim to those thousands
that you have returned
to the Church's arms.
By going to the stake unrepentant,
you do God a disservice.
You give hope to unbelievers.
Such an act can mine
the very foundations of the Church.
You are no longer important.
Well, think.
Are you any longer important?
I was never
important.
Then make a last supreme gesture
for the Catholic faith.
Go away, Laubardemont.
You are becoming tedious.
Do you know that the King has gone back
on his word because of your crimes?
The walls will come down,
the city will be destroyed. We have won.
- You have lost!
-Won!
Sign it!
You will sign.
Get up.
What is this place?
The convent of St Ursula.
The place you have defiled.
Do what must be done.
Ask forgiveness of Sister Jeanne
and these good women you have wronged.
