When King Louis XIV of France sought to purge the Huguenots in the 1600's, his death squads found a group known as the Camisards in the Cevennes Valley who simply would not die under any circumstances. Michael Talbot writes, in The Holographic Universe ...

"In an official report sent to Rome, one of the persecuters, a prior named Abbe du Chayla, complained that no matter what he did, he could not succeed in harming the Camisards. When he ordered them shot, the musket balls would be found flattened between their clothing and their skin. When he closed their hands upon burning coals, they were not harmed, and when he wrapped them head to toe in cotton soaked with oil and set them on fire, they did not burn"

Has anyone else heard of this group ? I wasn't able to find much about them apart from their standard history, certainly nothing to confirm the Abbe's report. However, I just read the Wikipedia entry for the Huguenots and noticed a mention of St Germain. Now that certainly adds to the story, since he is considered by many to be immortal.
