In his preface to this volume of The Medieval World series, David Bates describes the history of catharism, the 12th century dualist heresy that was most deeply entrenched in Languedoc, as requiring familiarity with 'Catholic and Cathar theology, the peculiarities of Occitan society, the Crusades and the procedures of the Inquisition'. Barber's book covers all these topics and, in this second edition, provides an update on the continuing scholarly controversies surrounding the Cathars.
