Inquisition from Its Establishment to Th
1927. The present study of the medieval Inquisition makes no pretense either to exhaustiveness or to originality. It may be said to take the form of a study rather than a history - a study of the particular problem of medieval heresy and of the means taken to combat it. The author makes no claim to have written a historical textbook on the medieval Inquisition. Contents: spirit of the middle ages; rise of the heresies; Languedoc and the crusade; establishment of the inquisition; inquisition in action; major penalties; crosses, pilgrimages and other sentences; inquisition in Europe; on the beliefs and practices of the Albeginsian heretics.
