Abstract:

"Chasing the Heretics is an unusual blend of history and travel in southern France. Rion Klawinski begins his journey in search of the facts surrounding a murder that happened in 1209, and continues on to trace the steps of the Cathars, a 13th century religious sect, and the Albigensian Crusade against them. In doing so, he uncovers the almost forgotten history of a group of doomed believers whose influence is still felt in the picturesque Languedoc region." "His own experiences traversing the ruggedly beautiful countryside and meandering through the vibrant cities and villages of Languedoc offer a counterpoint to his historical explorations, making his contemporary journey appealing to tourists, armchair travelers, and history buffs alike."--Jacket.
