The hidden tradition in Europe
Stoyanov brings to light the buried history of a tenacious heretical sect of the middle ages and the best-known adherents of Dualism, the doctrine that cosmos and man are constant battlegrounds between good and evil. Stoyanov charts the evolution of Dualism and illuminates unsuspected religious and political undercurrents that lie beneath the surface of official history.
