      Honorius III once more cranked up the machinery of the crusade at the French clergy. However, in another sense, they marked a qualitative degeneration in behaviour for those involved, for they engendered and strengthened hostile attitudes towards those who were different from the perceived norm and opened the way for the development of an ingrained superiority towards those who did not follow the banner of Christ as interpreted in the Latin West. Nicetas had previously converted the Lombard church to absolute dualism on his way to Languedoc. In the s, two perfecti were converted to Catholicism and promptly preferred to canonries in Toulouse.

      At the approach of Montfort he abandoned the place, burying alive the captured sergeants under debris in the moat. These accounts of ordinary men and women, remembering what it was like to live through such brutal times, bring the story vividly to life. God will know his own. Richard C.

      The crusaders decided to attack Damascus, breaking a long period of cooperation between Jerusalem and the city's Seljuk rulers. Behind such lurid sadism lay a sustained attempt by this local noble couple to preserve their independence. This experience has been called gnosis, from the Greek word for "knowledge", and for the Cathars it took precedence over all creeds and dogma. Although child bearing was considered evil, the Good God made no discrimination between the souls of men and women. Haunting and immersive, A Most Holy War opens an important new perspective on a truly pivotal moment in world history, a first and distant foreshadowing of the genocide and holy violence in the modern world. The Albigensian crusades violently altered the political destinies of Languedoc, its social structures as well as religious and cultural orientation.

The Albigensian Crusades

It was reported that Amalric, when asked how to distinguish Cathars from Catholics, responded, "Kill them all! Cathars followed the Donatist heretics of the early church in arguing that the spiritual power of priests and the efficacy of their ministry depended on their own moral state, which made their own priestly hierarchy vulnerable to the slightest charges of hypocrisy, backsliding or corruption.

They exchanged gifts, reconciled, [55] and the excommunication was lifted. Just as he could not have foreseen the diversion of his crusade, so the pope could not have prophesied in March how this new crusade would develop. On one occasion, a donor to the abbey of St Sernin in Toulouse was received into the order on his deathbed only for it to be discovered after his burial that he had also received the consolamentum, a neat double indemnity that revealed the Cathar habit of outward or occasional conformity, a trait that greatly worried the Catholic hierarchy.

A Norman chronicler suggested that many of those who marched were later recruited to the Albigensian crusade. Sibly and Sibly, pp. Rural Catharism revolved around the small castles, fortified villages and households of the local nobility, whose adherence to the radical faith was eased by the sophisticated literary cosmology imported by Nicetas from Constantinople, which was not predicated on hierarchical social or economic tensions or guilt.

The key problem, from Rome's point of view, was that the Cathars in constituted a heresy which could conceivably displace Roman Catholicism as the dominant form of Christianity. The prince died seven years later, but Saladin had already seized Damascus and much of Syria from his ward's relatives.

Under the command of the papal legate, Arnaud Amalric[61] they started to besiege the city, calling on the Catholics within to come out, and demanding that the Cathars surrender.

He was the God of love, order, and peace. InBernard of Clairvaux conducted a concerted and apparently successful preaching campaign in pursuit of Henry the Monk, an itinerant anti-clerical Donatist who had established a base in Toulouse after a long career evangelizing in western France.

Lavaur submitted. A representative of the Cathar church of Constantinople, papa Nicetas, persuaded the assembly to adopt absolute dualism, established three new dioceses, of Carcassonne, Agen and Toulouse, and consecrated their new bishops as well as reconsecrating the bishops of France, Lombardy and Albi and giving all a renewedconsolamentum.

The Expansion of Crusading

The papal Legate Bishop Arnaud Amaury was asked what to do since the crusaders could not tell the heretics from the Christians within the church. This, they reckoned, accurately as it turned out, the sacrifice of a few eccentric neighbours was unlikely to alter.

This gave the crusaders an opportunity for consolidation before a pan-Islamic counter-attack. For Montfort, killing prisoners may have seemed the only way of gaining revenge upon an enemy that would not confront the crusaders directly. Raymond VI the Count of Toulouse, who implicitly supported the heretics was excommunicated and only reconciled to the church after meeting very harsh terms.

The army may have numberedincluding non-combatant. The Albigensian crusades fell into four distinct phases; the annexation of the Trencavel lands —11 ; the conquest of the county of Toulouse and the Pyrenean counties —15 ; the revival of southern resistance —25 ; and the Capetian conquest —9.

He further shows how a millennial fervor about "cleansing" the world of heresy, coupled with a fear that Christendom was being eaten away from within by heretics who looked no different than other Christians, made the battles, sieges, and massacres of the crusade almost apocalyptic in their cruel intensity.

Generally, what people mean when they speak of the Crusades is the series of wars fought between Christianity and Islam. Rumours suggested that discussions at the papal Curia in had authorized the destruction of any who resisted the crusade. More generally,credentes merged into a wider spectrum of response to Cathar belief, from the commitment of the perfectus, lay belief, general sympathy and familial or social contact through hedging religious bets and indifference to distaste, suspicion, opposition and persecution.

This experience has been called gnosis, from the Greek word for "knowledge", and for the Cathars it took precedence over all creeds and dogma. It was not even a nice place to contemplate the myriad connections between the Cathars, Templars, Merovingians, Benjamites, and the Magdalen.

Mutual respect for knightly values did not exist in a world so divided by religious, cultural and linguistic differences. Cusimano and Moorhead, p. Most of the places where Cathars are known to have lived he left untouched, and at only a small minority of the castles and towns Montfort captured was the presence of heretics recorded.Feb 01,  · Now, after Héléne Débax's recent thesis, La féodalité languedocienne XI e-XII e siécles: Serments, hommages et fiefs dans le Languedoc des Trencavel (), Elaine Graham-Leigh's book focuses on the family's destruction in the first months of the Albigensian sylvaindez.com: Fredric L.

Cheyette.
