The Albigensian Heresy (New)
by Warner, H J
Publisher: Book Tree
Book ID: 9781585092932, 1585092932
Usually available in 3-5 days
The Albigensians were mostly from Southern France with the village of Albi being a center for their beliefs, hence their name. The Roman Church launched a 20 year crusade against them from 1209 to 1229, making this the only crusade ever launched against their own fellow Christians. The Albigensians were also known as Cathars. This book thoroughly explores their belief system, explaining how and why it upset the Roman Church, and covers many of the key players and religious leaders that were involved in the movement. This was a highly spiritual movement which attracted many people who were upset with the corruption and control that the Church had been exhibiting at the time. The Church often reacted with severe brutality in order to put a stop to the competing spiritual expression that was spreading rapidly throughout the countryside. This book does not cover much of the physical battles and warfare, but focuses more of the clash of beliefs and the political maneuvering, allowing the reader to come away with a clear understanding of the Cathar creed, and their system of belief. 96 pages

Meaning 'light bearer', Lucifer has, from his earliest origins, been hailed by religious and artistic countercultures as a patron saint of enlightenment -- the essential quality embodying overthrow of ignorance and the inspired process of revelation. Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
