Join J Stephen Roberts, Rand Brown, and special guest Paul Copenhagen for a discussion of the Albigensian Crusade (1209-1229). At the dawn of the thirteenth century, Pope Innocent III determined that the Cathar heresy spreading throughout the Occitan could no longer be endured. Therefore, he called on the Kingdom of France to launch a crusade to take control of the Languedoc and restore orthodoxy. Simon of Montfort, a great northern French lord, would emerge as the crusade’s dynamic leader.

Thanks to Dr. Helena Schrader for providing the photographs of the Occitan for this podcast!
