    Bob wrote, in part: " The Cathars were also known as the Albigensians,
    after the city of Albi
    in southern France, then the independent Kingdom of Provence, which was
    of their chief cities. A French army with papal blessing went after
    Gnostic/Manichaean Chrisitans in the early 13th century."

    Thanks, Bob. I remember reading (or hearing in a class lecture) some of
    that stuff a year or so ago. I probably ought to look deeper into it (so
    many books, so little time). <G>

    I do remember a class discussion on whether the Cathars were:

    1. Christians
    2. Misguided Christians
    3. Heretical Christians
    4. heretics
    5. Non-Christians

    At a school like Iliff, of course, no consensus was reached. <G>
