France. Its palaces were rich in art, dominated by codes of courtly love. Its tongue was a musical dialect that had given the region a flourishing poetry & was to give it a name—Languedoc (for langue d'oc, lit. language of yes).

French kings coveted Languedoc. Innocent III loathed it as the Cathar religion's center, the last great Christian heresy before the Reformation to shake Roman power. Besieging Béziers, the French came in god's name, seeking heretics.

Inside, they slaughtered until the red crosses on their white tunics were lost in blood. In 51 hours, they killed the city's population of 20,000. Languedoc's rape, which, under the name of the Albigensian Crusade, took place during 35 years of unparalleled savagery following the slaughter at Béziers, has now preoccupied Oldenbourg thru one remarkable volume of history, Massacre at Montségur, & two historical novels.
