  • Title: Preferire l'eresia? Donne catare in Linguadoca nel primo Trecento [The histography of women Cathars usually focuses on the twelfth and thirteenth centuries, not on their declining numbers in the early fourteenth century. Evidence from Montaillou shows Cathar teachings transmitted within families. The women who converted often ignored misogynistic tenets of Catharism in favor of elements like belief that dead babies would experience reincarnation. Title note supplied by Feminae.]
