    Completely rejecting the Church and its trappings, Catharism was the most successful heresy of the Middle Ages, when it flourished especially in the Languedoc and Italy. Sean Martin explains the Cathars' teachings about the simple life of prayer, work, fasting and non-violence, and recounts the events of their obliteration in the Albigensian Crusade that was launched against them by a Church alarmed by their popularity with peasants, artisans and women.
