That a whole vicinage, when it had timely notice, should bind itself in a league to defeat the purpose of the inquisitors, as at Castelnaudary, must have been a frequent experience; that, sooner or later, despair should bring about a catastrophe like that of Avignonet was inevitable. Montsegur for years had been the Mount Tabor of the Oathari —the place of refuge in which, as its name implies, they could feel secure when safety could be hoped for nowhere else.
