From the cover: “Among the brave stories of man’s fight for freedom and search for truth, none is more illuminating at the present time than the courageous struggle of the Albigenses in the thirteenth century when the Roman Catholic Church strove to obliterate them as heretics aad to drive them from their high citadel at Montsegur in the French Pyrenees, from the silent mountains which fostered their love of freedom and inspired a desire for truth that, in men like Wolf of Foix, drove them over equally rocky landscapes of the mind.”
