Our New Albigensian Age

This was one of SCSS president and Franciscan University of Steubenville professor Stephen M. Krason’s “Neither Left Nor Right, but Catholic” columns that appeared initially in on September 17, 2013. It points to the curious similarities between what the adherents of the Albigensian heresy (a version of Gnosticism)—which, incidentally, helped trigger the Inquisition—believed and current cultural perspectives. The parallels between the Albigensians and the current age, especially on sexual and human life questions and male-female relations, are striking.
