The Cathar religion was extinguished by 1230 by the brutal Albigensian crusade. But that hasn’t stopped all kinds of wackos from appropriating the Cathar name.

  1. It is a shame, of course.

    I wouldnīt mind if they really made a great research work and start a religion even - but based on the beliefs of that time.

    Since it is quite difficult to control this kind of thing we just have to trust that there are enough people to make fun of them over television and books.
