Pope Innocent III ordered a crusade against the Albigenses in 1208 which
resulted in the extermination and dispersal of this group. Recent Roman
Catholic history of the Albigenses attributes to them the belief in two
gods, denial of the sacraments, denial of the humanity of Christ and denial
of the authority of the Church and State. They are supposed to have
believed that marriage and its use were wrong, forbidding concubinage and
abortion. Suicide was permissible; meat and wine forbidden, and they are
said to have believed in the transmigration of souls.
From NEVER FAILING LIGHT, R.M. Stephens, p. 31,32. "No sect has been more
vilified by the Roman Catholics than the Cathari (Albigenses). They are
represented as being infested with the Manichean heresy (2nd century) who
believed in two gods, one resonsible for good and the other for evil. These
two gods were held to be in perpetual conflict.
"To attribute this teaching to the Albigenses is a travesty of the truth
due either to malevolence or ignorance of spiritual truth."
