Of course, there are entire books written about the Cathars, so it's hardly that big a surprise.

Is there any interest in seeing previews of essays up on the board? I don't really know what people want, the rush of disovery when it goes up or teasers? I ask because once the FM column goes live, there's a good chance the essays will gravitate to there.

Part two is great. I wish I was coming to the essay with a greater prior knowledge of the subject, but it's still a fascinating read for me.

If you had to recommend one book on the Cathars, which would it be?
How's part three coming along?

Well, The Perfect Heresy by Stephen O'Shea is pretty good, albeit told in that style of 'narrative history' that you see in books like And the band played on and it doesn't really work so well here. Yuri Stoyanov's The Other God is simply brilliant. Best book on dualism that has ever existed, bar none. (That's two books, showing that I am an utter failure at doing as instructed.) One of those two might be a solid bet, and I'd go with the Stoyanov if you wanted a more general overview of dualism.

Thanks. I'll put Stoyanov on my must-list.
