Description: A brilliant exploration of the medieval community that, with almost miraculous psychological fortitude and strength of faith, defied the Catholic Church and the Inquisition.

In the 13th century, the Cathars, residing in what is now southwest France, became the focus of systematic repression by the Church and were forced to wear the yellow cross, the heretic's symbol of shame. In successive waves of brutal persecution, thousands of Cathars were captured, summarily tried, and burned at the stake. Yet so ardent was the faith of their community that during the years 1290 to 1320 the Cathars rose up one last time.

Rene Weis tells the full story of these 30 years with the aid of remarkably detailed documentation -- including trial records, interrogation notes, and minutes of the Inquisitors -- as well as his own intimate knowledge of the last Cathars' hiding places, many of which survive to this day.

Authoritative, eminently readable, and peopled with indelible characters -- from a charismatic, reputedly beautiful chatelaine and a double-dealing priest to a loquacious, heroic shepherd and a merciless bishop -- The Yellow Cross is an exceptionally vivid re-creation of a fascinating, and otherwise lost, world.
