1229: Albigensians, From 1208 until this date a Crusade was held in
the southwest corner of France (Languedoc or Provence) against a
people who called themselves Christians. Others called them
Albigensians after their town of Albi, or Cathars. Their crime was
a heretical interpretation of the religion and too much political
power, in the person of Raymond VI of Toulouse (1194-1212), who on the
onset of the crusade declared himself Catholic and tried to lead it,
but later fought for the Cathars.
