Rion Klawinski (au). An unusual blend of history & travel in southern France. Klawinski begins his journey in search of the facts surrounding a murder that happened in 1209, & continues on to trace the steps of the Cathars, a 13th century religious sect, & 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. While the Crusades were fought under the aegis of the Catholic Church, the desire for land, power, & royal favor played as important a role in recruiting & inspiring crusaders as any religious conviction did. Includes Klawinski’s own experiences traversing the beautiful countryside & meandering through the villages of Languedoc.
