More Catholic Killing History


Already in 385 C.E. the first Christians, the Spanish Priscillianus and six followers, were beheaded for heresy in Trier/Germany

Begin of violence: on command of pope Innocent III (greatest single pre-nazi mass murderer) in 1209. Bezirs (today France) 7/22/1209 destroyed, all the inhabitants were slaughtered. Victims (including Catholics refusing to turn over their heretic neighbours and friends) 20,000-70,000.

Carcassonne 8/15/1209, thousands slain. Other cities followed.

subsequent 20 years of war until nearly all Cathars (probably half the population of the Languedoc, today southern France) were exterminated.

Estimated one million victims (cathar heresy alone)

Spanish Inquisitor Torquemada alone allegedly responsible for 10,220 burnings.
