AMOR VS. ROMA Cathars and the Birth of the Inquisition

by | Read by Bob Chelmick

History • 2 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2004

The CBC has a real gift for colorful and engrossing historical documentaries, and this one is a standout. Weaving scholarly interviews and observations with stirring sound effects and music, AMOR VS. ROMA parts the curtain on the fascinating ancient mystic/ascetics, the Cathars. This much vilified group triggered the Inquisition, and as a logical result, seemed unable to escape calumny, slander, and execution. The colorful historic panorama surrounding them could spawn several Hollywood blockbusters. As this recording feeds the mind, listeners may crave some gourmet popcorn to accompany the tale. D.J.B.
