Product Details


“There can be fewer better guides than this beautiful book, which lets an almost forgotten people, even through the filter of time and the Inquisition, speak for themselves.” —The Washington Post Book World

"In a feat of inspired scholarship, Weis transports us back to that world, conveying all of the high drama of ecclesiastical interrogations, covert ceremonies, and fiery martyrdom. . . . A book that will long haunt its readers."–Booklist

"This book reanimates the real world of the Cathars of seven hundred years ago in a way that is fresh, utterly modern, and pulsates with life."–Emmanuel Le Roy Ladurie, author of Montaillou

"It succeeds enthrallingly . . . a moving evocation of an almost inconceivable faith."–The Times (London)
