    Moore's War On Heresy

    • 2121 Words
    • 9 Pages

    More research is required in order to really understand this vibrant phenomenon. The historians under study here all approached the study of heresy in their own way, even if some of their ideas or methods were similar in some aspects. The study of heresy for Pegg and Moore has been cloaked by the “Cathar” heresy. If this is the case, more studies are required to really grapple with the fallout of losing “Catharism.” That is, if we are to take out “Cathars” from the picture of heresy where does that leave the other heresies that have been studied under similar circumstances? For Pegg, we must completely rewrite the history of medieval heresy; indeed he even argues medieval religion. I do not quite agree that this step is necessary. A study of medieval heresy can (and has been done even if Burnham is at times occupied with “Cathars”) be done by removing “Cathars” from the picture. But if we are going to continue to write a history of medieval heresy with the “Cathars” then more work is necessary to really illuminate their world as too much of the evidence for “Catharism” is rooted in arguments from silence. More work, like that of Caterina Bruschi, is sure to be done on evoking the world of the “Cathars.” Furthermore, there are more inquisitorial records out there that can – and most likely currently – be mined for more fruitful information about medieval heresy. We must take into account the methodological…

While other crusaders fought Christian heretics in the Albigensian Crusade, the Children’s Crusade of 1212 sought to fulfill the mission and travel to Jerusalem. Although…

In the late Middle Ages all those who performed magic were associated with the devil and considered a cult. This form of magic was considered to be the worst heresy possible. The concept of witchcraft helped lead to the witch crisis in the beginning of the fourteenth century. Jeffery Russell states in his book, Witchcraft in the Middle Ages, that “Medieval…

    From the Christian Martyrs in Ancient Rome to the suppression of Catharism in the 13th and 14th centuries, the Counter-Reformation and the 30 Years War that followed it, religious condemnation and persecution has been commonplace throughout European History, including the medieval era. Often, this persecution in fact benefitted the persecutors personally, rather than being a selfless act to ensure the faith remained ‘pure’. This was no less true during the 12th century Renaissance – the time of…

Dr. Morrison first statement in the case of Baptism of the Holy Ghost is as follows: “In the great scheme of human redemption, God has provided that all of His children may receive the Baptism with the Holy Ghost.” John the Baptist preached in the wilderness “repent and be baptize” but he also stated “ I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance but he that cometh…
