Summary
The Cathars were a gentle group who believed the physical world to be the creation of an inferior and jealous God and that Christ had come to liberate us, to escape the cycle of reincarnation. This book shows how their persecution as heretics began the subjugation of the states of the Languedoc.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Eight hundred years ago, the Cathars, a group of heretical Christians from all walks of society, high and low, flourished in what is now the Languedoc in Southern France. Their subversive beliefs brought down on them the wrath of Popes and monarchs and provoked a brutal 'Crusade' against them. The final defeat of the Cathars was horrific with mass burnings of men, women and children in the village of Montaillou in the Pyrenees.
