At the end of the twelfth century, in Southern France, the Cathars, a mysterious Christian community preached ancient Holy Scriptures against the dogmas and wealth of the Catholic Church. To eradicate their faith, the Roman Pope established the Inquisition and convinced the King of France to send forth the first crusade ever conducted against Christians. The Cathars were hunted down and exterminated. They were called "Heretics".
