Chapter Summary

Most of the register consists of records of people interrogated about heresy by Dominican inquisitors in Toulouse, between 1273 and 1282. During the twelfth century Languedoc became one of regions of Latin Christendom most notorious for the vigorous presence of heresy and the Church's repeated attempts to do something about it. Heresy mainly meant the Cathar faith and Church, which existed openly until 1209. After their excommunication in 1184 it also came to include the Waldensians, who were less radical than the Cathars and fewer in number. The main features in the history of the Dominican inquisition in Languedoc are famous: its long duration after its inception in 1233, its power and the terrible measures it used, its eventual success in wiping out the last vestiges of Catharism in the 1310s-1320s, and the survival of copious inquisition records.
