The Cathars and the WeaversMikey 24 comments
In the 11th century a religious sect called The Cathars gained popularity in Europe before reaching into France. The Cathars believed that the material world and its creator - the God of the old testament - were evil.
Cathar Priests preached that the material world was corrupt and that the only way to release 'the spark of light' in man was to destroy man and the material world.
At the order of the Pope in the 13th century, every last Cathar man woman and child was slaughtered by the Christian army, but it is believed that 4 High Priest weavers escaped and smuggled out a scroll written by Jesus Christ himself. The scroll was divided into 4 parts and hidden at locations around the world.
How do the weavers fit into all of this, and how did they store the location of the 4 scroll pieces? It's quite a story, and best appreciated if you watch the 11 minute documentary below.
