Hardcover: $55.00

Charles Robert Maturin’s last novel, The Albigenses (1824), a historical romance of the early 13th century, is a rich tale of the conflict between the Catholic church and the Albigenses, a... More > heretical sect centered in Languedoc. Its historical background does little to inhibit Maturin’s strong penchant for extravagant scenes of violence, horror, and vivid evocations of nature at its least benign. His many characters people a well-plotted story of impressive density—the heroine, Genevieve, kind hearted, bold, true to her creed; the ruthless bishop of Toulouse; churchmen and women, of varying degrees of piety; maniacal harridans, formidable outlaws, and knights in armor. The Albigenses received, in general, better reviews than most of his other works, mainly because of its relatively reduced emphasis on blasphemous doings, but the reputation of Melmoth the Wanderer soon overshadowed it. This new edition of The Albigenses aspires to renew interest in the Irish master’s final elaborate and engrossing tale.< Less

Das Katharerland oder Pays cathare ist bereits vor Jahren von findigen Fremdenverkehrsverbänden im Südosten Frankreichs zu einer erfolgreichen Marke gemacht worden. Und dennoch: wenig... More > Greifbares ist geblieben von den Katharern, einer christlichen Sondergemeinschaft des Hochmittelalters. Im 13. Jahrhundert beschlossen der Papst und der französische König die Ausrottung der Katharer. Mehr als einhundert Jahre sollte der im Jahr 1209 begonnene Kampf um das Land und den Geist der Okzitanier andauern. Erst mit dem Schwert und anschließend mit den Mitteln der Inquisition. Auch heute noch raunen die Honoratioren kleiner Dörfer im Katharerland dem ausländischen Besucher zu: "Sie müssen wissen, wir sind keine Franzosen - wir sind Okzitanier!" Geblieben ist das Land mit seinen vielfältigen Farben und Formen und geblieben sind die Menschen, die es bewohnen.< Less

More > Vaux de Cernay Abbey, in what is now Yvelines, northern France, and a chronicler of the Albigensian Crusade. His Historia Albigensis is one of the primary sources for the events of that crusade.The chronicle is thought to have been written from 1212 to 1218, recounting events which were principally those of 1203 to 1208, but also later events, at some of which Peter himself was present as eyewitness. His uncle Guy of Vaux-de-Cernay was his abbot, bishop of Carcassonne for some years from 1212, and a preacher brought in earlier to preach against Catharism by Simon IV de Montfort.Peter had also followed the early Fourth Crusade, with Guy, as far as Zara, Dalmatia.
