Part 2 : The Cathars, the most Successful Heresy of the Middle Ages...The Albigensian Crusade ...The Inquisition

Pope Innocent? surely it reads like a bad joke,I mean seriously mental illness was a big problem back in this day,pure insanity over someone not believing like yourself, I guess there is a lesson here somewhere, but it seems to have been over looked, as this 'church' is just as despicable now with it's fraudsters posing as god's voice on the rock...

... The Languedoc in the year 1200 was a society in remarkable flower. It was one of the most cosmopolitan and sophisticated areas of Europe: trade flourished in the great towns of Toulouse and Carcassonne, with Toulouse itself being only outclassed by Rome and Venice in terms of size and cultural life.The arts were enjoying a renascence, with the ideals of courtly love being praised in the songs and poems of the Troubadours. Religious tolerance was conspicuous, and Jews in particular enjoyed freedoms that they were denied elsewhere. Woven into this rich fabric was Catharism, which, by the turn of the thirteenth century, was endemic throughout the Languedoc. Encouraged by the momentous visit of Nicetas, the Perfect had been hard at work for over a generation, spreading the dualist word throughout the south, creating an heretical kingdom that stretched from Provence to Aragon. That they had been so successful is a tribute both to the temerity and faith of the Perfect, but also to the unique way of life that the Languedoc was enjoying at this high-water mark in its history.

The name Languedoc is a contraction of langue d’oc, the ‘language of yes’, a reference to the fact that in the region’s native tongue, Occitan, yes is oc, not oui.The French language and those who spoke it were far to the north in the Île de France. Power in the Languedoc was shared between the counts of Toulouse, Foix and Comminges, and the viscounts of Béziers and Carcassonne. Although the Languedocian Cathars did not argue amongst themselves, the lords of Languedoc resembled the Italian Cathars: disputes were frequent, quarrels habitual, petty vendettas the norm.

The most powerful of them all was Raymond VI, count of Toulouse. His court was a kaleidoscopic mix of Catholic, Cathar and Jew, entertained by Troubadours and Jongleurs. His friends, as Stephen O’Shea notes, ‘were not distinguished for their piety.’55 Raymond had inherited his title in 1194 from his father, Raymond V. His parents seem to have been on opposite sides of the fence in matters of faith: Raymond’s mother, Constance, had been present at Lombers in 1165 when the Cathars had faced down their Catholic opponents, while his father had invited a group of churchmen to investigate the heresy situation in his lands in 1177.They came, they saw, and promptly concluded that eradicating Catharism from the Languedoc was an impossible task, and went home as soon as possible.The one man whom they did manage to convict was sent to Jerusalem as penance.When he got back to Toulouse, far from having his tail between his legs, he was given a hero’s welcome and was promptly given a well-paid job. This pretty much summed things up: as St Bernard had found to his cost, the Languedoc was indeed a ‘land of many heresies’ and respect for the Church was about as low as it could possibly be.
