Objective of this Project

The objective of this project is to be a repository for contemporary adepts and supporters of the Cathar movement in the 11th-13th century - primarely in the regions of Languedoc and Catalunya.

This repository includes:

  • Cathar Perfecti ('Bons Hommes', who had received the consolamentum - or Cathar baptism)
  • Cathar Credentes (believers)
  • Patrons of the Cathar church.
  • Military (knights, soldiers)

Patrons of the Cathar movement were not necessarily believers. Many patrons (local lords, such as the Trencavels) would tolerate the Cathar belief system in opposition to the dominance and perceived excesses of the catholic clergy. More importantly, for many patrons, the Cathar movement was a phenomenon that played straight into the geopolitical cards of that time, specifically between the power of the Crown of Aragon and the French kings. Many of these patrons were, or became, 'faydits' - nobles who were dispossessed of their properties due to the ever-changing alliances in the region.

For more information, please refer to Cathars, the umbrella project.

Notes to editors:

  • If a patron of the Cathar cause was also a believer or a 'parfait', please move the name to the latter profiles. Leave patrons in their category if only political patronage can be demonstrated.
  • Please provide the birthplace or best known origin for a name. This helps to understand the relationships between dioceses as well as political patronage.
  • An asterisk * behind a name indicates that this person is confirmed in the correct category - Perfecti, Credentes, Patrons, or Military).'
