Heretics tells the story of Magali, a noblewoman raised to believe that she carries the Magdalene bloodline, and a sacred duty to pass it on. But in 13th-century Languedoc, Cathars see procreation as a sin, the Catholic Church burns those “good Christians” by the hundreds, and Troubadours sing that marriage is no impediment to true love. These are just some of the heresies in this stirring meditation on Truth, and how Love and Faith can reveal it or become its opposition. Part courtly romance, part spiritual allegory, it is based on meticulous research, but refuses to let history get in the way of a good story.
