The Albigensian Crusade, the first in which Christians were promised salvation for killing other Christians, lasted twenty bloody years--a long savage war for the soul of Christendom. In A Most Holy War, historian Mark Pegg has produced a swift-moving, gripping narrative of this horrific crusade. Pegg draws in part on thousands of testimonies collected by inquisitors in the years 1235 to 1245, accounts of ordinary men and women remembering what it was like to live throughsuch brutal times. In responding to heresy with a holy genocidal war, Innocent III fundamentally changed how Western civilization dealt with individuals accused of corrupting society. This change, Pegg argues, led directly to the creation of the inquisition, the rise of an anti-Semitism, and even the holyviolence of the Reconquista in Spain. "A bold, erudite, engaging, and superbly written study of what has long been one of the most central topics in medieval and Mediterranean history." --Teofilo F. Ruiz, Professor of History, UCLA

Mark Gregory Pegg is Associate Professor of History at Washington University in St. Louis.
