Reviews about Montaillou Cathars and Catholic In a French Village (4):
Forcestalker
An unerringly accurate portrayal of everyday medieval life, where days were measured solely in religious terms and distance measured in arrow flights.
Nikok
Great book, but was worn and yellowed more than the picture let on.
*Nameless*
I read this book in college, loaned it to another student and never got it back. Nice to find it again on Amazon so I can reread and enjoy.
