Description

Cathars, Templars and bloodshed - uncover the mysteries of the Languedoc behind the bestselling novelImagine a land that has seen empires rise and fall. A place where people have killed for power and for religion, and a place where people have died to keep those secrets and beliefs. This is the Languedoc, and this is the book that will share the secrets of this incredible land with you.LABYRINTH told the story of Carcassonne and the search, across centuries, for the grail that people have long rumoured was taken to this place by the Templars fleeing the holy land. Building on Kate Mosse's meticulous research for her bestselling novel, Greg Mosse now shows how the region was home to the Cathars, who clung to this dramatic mountain landscape in stone fortresses and battled against siege, inquisition and massacre to keep their faith, and keep some much older secrets.An astonishing journey through history and across continents, SECRETS OF THE LABYRINTH will take you from the mountains of the Pyrenees, behind the fortified walls of Carcassonne and Montsegur, into the sacred cathedrals of Chartres and St Nazaire, and further out into the Holy Land and the ancient civilisations of Egypt.show more
