  • A Crusade in the Heart of Christian Europe

    The evocative region of southwestern France has had a long and deeply-entrenched specific regional character which for centuries put it at odds with the rest of France. But it was an enigmatic sect of Christians here that proved to be a threat to the established Church during the Middle Ages, and, therefore, thrust the area onto the world stage. Known as Cathars, they held an unorthodox set of beliefs and their practices quickly became anathema to the guardians of Roman Catholicism. Join us to explore the Cathars—their beliefs, traditions, and lifestyle—as well as the Catholic Church’s crusade against them as we journey directly into the heart of the Cathar homeland–a verdant region dotted with fairytale-like citadels at the base of the Pyrenees Mountains–known as the Languedoc.
