Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar
Catharism was a name given to a Christian religious sect that appeared in the Languedoc region of Southern France and flourished in the 12th and 13th centuries. Catharism had its roots in the Paulician movement in Armenia and the Bogomils of Bulgaria with whom the Paulicians merged. The Cathars saw matter as intrinsically evil, they denied that Jesus could become incarnate and still be the son of God. The Catholic Church regarded the sect as dangerously heretical. Faced with the rapid spread of the movement across the Languedoc region, the Church called for a crusade, which was carried out by knights from Northern France and Germany and was known as the Albigensian Crusade. The anti-Cathar Albigensian Crusade, and the inquisition which followed it, entirely eradicated the Cathars. The Albigensian Crusade had the effect of greatly weakening the semi-independent southern Principalities included in the area of Occitania, such as Toulouse, and ultimately bringing them under direct control of the King of France. Occitania, which had the misfortune of being the collateral victim fo the Albigensian Crusade, used to be the crossroad of many cultures : Arabic Al-Andalus, Northern France and Flanders, Italy and even Constantinople. From this melting pot emerged a very refined culture, which culminated with the troubadour tradition : it subsequently spread into Italy, Spain, and even Greece. Under the influence of the troubadours, related new movements sprang up throughout Europe: the Minnesang in Germany, trovadorismo in Galicia and Portugal, and that of the trouvères in northern France. This album does not only explore the "classical" period of the troubadour school around the turn of the thirteenth century, it also provides us with a comprehensive historical and artistic background of this Golden Age. It is time we remembered this "forgotten kingdom", from which so much of theWestern culture emerged.
