GREGORY IX 1227-1241

Condemnation of Various Heretics *

[From the form of anathema published Aug. 20, I229 MI]


444 “We excommunicate and anathematize… all heretics”: the Cathari, the Patareni, the Pauperes of Lyons, the Passagini, the Josephini, the Arnoldistac, the Speronistae, and others, “by whatever names they may be known; having different faces indeed, but “tails coupled to each other” [ Judg. 15:4 ], because from vanity they come together at the same point.” *
