The gripping and tragic true story of a Pacific sect that was wiped out in the first genocide of flourishing Europe mainly in Languedoc and Italy, Cathars taught Cathars that the world is bad and must be transcended by a simple life of prayer, work, fa Sting and non-violence.They believed that they were the heirs of the true heritage of Christianity that dates back to apostolic times and completely rejected the Catholic Church, about it as the church of Satan; Cathar services and ceremonies, on the other hand, took place in fields, barns and retirement homes.To find support for the nobility of the angry political situation in the south of France, Cathars find popularity among peasants and craftsmen.And once again, unlike the church, respected Cathars women and women played a major role in the movement.Alarmed by the success of catharism, the church founded the Inquisition and launched the crusade of the Albigenians to exterminate heresy.The crusade was the first to be directed against other Christians and was also the first European genocide.With the fall of the Cathar fortress of Montségur in 1244, catharism was largely obliterated, although faith survived until the early 14th century.Today, the mysticism surrounding Cathars is stronger than ever, and Sean Martin tells their story and the myths associated with them in this animated and captivating book.
