There seems to be two sides (even among Catholics) when it comes to the Cathars nowadays:
- That they were for the most part peaceful, some or a lot of their negative perception is/was propaganda on the part of the Church and thus the Albegensian Crusade was nothing short of murder.
- That they were anti-life, promoted ritualistic suicide, were deceptive & murderous, and thus the Albegensian Crusade was justified.
Does anyone know where I can find any reliable reading material on this matter, preferably from a Catholic author?
Thanks in advance and God bless.
