V: The view from Montesegur

Looking down from the path to the castle Montesegur, the 600 Cathars under siege could through a long cold winter 1243/1244 look down to the mountain pass and see the camps of some 10.000 Crusaders there and down in the valley. How much hope could they have at the time to come through this siege of their castle. Amongst the Cathars were several of their leaders all hoping for Montesegur to be their safe place.
