Opis: The War on Heresy - R. I. Moore

This is a passionate history of the great war on heresy which dominated medieval Europe. The great war on heresy obsessed medieval Europe in the centuries after the first millennium. R. I. Moore's vivid narrative focusses on the motives and anxieties of those who declared and conducted the war: what were the beliefs and practices they saw as heretical? How might such beliefs have arisen? And why were they such a threat? In western Europe at AD 1000 heresy had barely been heard of. Yet within a few generations accusations had become commonplace and institutions were being set up to identify and suppress beliefs and practices seen as departures from true religion. Fears of heresy inspired passions that moulded European society for the rest of the middle ages and resulted in a series of persecutions that left an indelible mark on its history and culture. Popular accounts of events - most notably of the Albigensian Crusade led by Europe against itself - have assumed the threats posed by the heretical movements were only too real. Some scholars by contrast have tried to show that reports of heresy were exaggerated or even fabricated: but if they are correct why was the war on heresy launched at all? And why was it conducted with such pitiless ferocity? To find the answers to these and other questions R. I. Moore returns to the evidence of the time. His investigation forms the basis for an account as profound as it is startlingly original. "'Beautifully written, measured, searching, andsublimely free from jargon. We are presented with eyewitness accounts thatare not knocked into pre-conceived patterns. The effect is to draw the reader into not just the story but into how the story became a story in the first place.' (Rene Weis, Professor of English, University College London, and author of The Yellow Cross: The Story of the Last Cathars, 1290-1329)"
