Chapter Summary

According to the account of Hugh of Poitiers, the group of heretics condemned at Vézelay in 1167, who were interviewed frequently during a two-month period, likewise rejected the same sacraments, as well as the building of churches, tithes, and all the functions of clergy and priests. The Catalan dioceses of Lleida (in Castilian, Lrida) and Tortosa formed the southern boundaries of Christendom in the eastern Iberian peninsula. The inquisition at Castellbò was part of a bigger struggle between the counts of Foix and the bishops of Urgell. In Montpellier, a town well-known for Catholic orthodoxy, after the consuls had asked that measures be taken against the heretics who had entered into the city, the archbishop of Vienne, as legate of the apostolic see, was, in February 1237, ordered by Gregory IX to uproot heresy.
