Power & Purity

Oxford University Press

In 1268 an inquisition headed by a Franciscan, Fra Benvenuto, sentenced the Orvietan Cathars. In all, eighty-five people were sentenced, twenty-eight of them women. In eighteen cases—twelve men and six women—the inquisitors convicted the dead. This chapter examines the sentences of the 1268 inquisition and the problem of the repression of heresy in 13th-century Italy.

Keywords:   Catharism, inquisition, Orvientan Cathars, heresy
