René Weis tells the dramatic and moving story of these thirty years, offering a rich medieval tale of faith, adventure, sex, and courage. Having spent years exploring a rich trove of untouched information, including trial records and interrogation transcripts, Weis creates a remarkably detailed portrait of the last great gasp of the movement and the day-to-day life of the individual Cathars in their villages. This is an exceptionally vivid re-creation of a fascinating, and otherwise lost, world.
About: Provides an in-depth study of the medieval Cathar community, which, during the thirteenth century, became the focus of systematic repression by the Catholic Church, were branded as heretics, and suffered successive waves of persecution and execution, but whose faith led them to defy the Catholic Church and the Inquisition for more than thirty years.
