  1. This is quite a book And it s certainly good to read if you re looking for a good debate I was not a fan, but to be fair, this book does have a few things going for it Pegg makes some good points about the sources for the Albigensian Crusade The fact that some historians have been rather hasty in applying sources written in northern France in the 1230s and 1240s several decades after the crusade had begun to the beliefs of those in the south in the late 1100s is a point well worth remembering Pe [...]


  2. A Most Holy War The Albigensian Crusade and the Battle for Christendom by Mark Gregory Pegg is an attempt to address misconceptions regarding the Cathar heretics and modern portrayals of them Pegg makes a strong case that the Cathars never existed, and that the twenty year long crusade in Southern France was a crusade against Albigensian heretics in a very specific geographic area He has a very negative view towards past histories of these events, and he criticized the sources used in previous s [...]


  3. Well what can I say, the Crusades have always fascinated me, and this book on the Albigensian Crusade was deeply affecting For those of you not familiar with these Crusades they were against Christian Heretics in the area around Toulouse in the mid to late 12th century What makes the crusades so disturbing and the book such a fascinating read is that these crusades were the first time that a crusade was launched against Christians in Europe rather than focused on the holy land and the fight agai [...]


  4. A Most Holy War covers the Albigensian Crusade which was the first Crusade against another Catholic group Pope Innocent III accused a count of Toulouse France Raimon VI of killing a papal legate He called upon all Christians to fight the count and wipe out his heretics across Southern France The war which carried on for twenty years is told in exquisite if not horrific detail of atrocities carried out on both sides in the name of God Eyewitness accounts and firsthand stories put a very human fac [...]


  5. Actually I didn t finish this book I didn t even get halfway through it If you re looking for extremely well researched, detailed information, this is the book I wanted the information, but not in such a long, drawn out textbook style Pretty fascinating, though, to find out that there was no official Cathar religion or group the heretics the church exterminated were primarily different groups, the largest of which seems to have been the Bon Chretians commonly referred to as the Good Men, Good Wo [...]


  6. Brief account of the Crusades in southern France in the 13th century Good mix of talking about the practices of the so called Cathars, and the various Dukes and Kings who exploited the Pope s call for religious war.


  7. The topic is an often overplayed epic of history, having been infused with a mystery in part by Dan Brown that was just lacking at the time it all went down It s a complicated time in history and the author does a decent job of keeping things straight It s nonetheless confusing at points.


  8. Fascinating narrative history of the Albigensian crusade Generous in the inclusion of source material, it makes for very grim reading.


  9. I have tried to read this several times The subject interests me but this is not a style that I can appreciate I was looking for a narrative not a textbook.


  10. This is one man s perspective on the Albigensian Crusade I just started it This is for research purposes for my own writing.
