Crusade opposed to the Grail is the bold e-book that popularized the legend of the Cathars and the Holy Grail. the 1st version seemed in Germany in 1933 and drew upon Rahn’s account of his explorations of the Pyrenean caves the place the heretical Cathar sect sought shelter through the thirteenth century. through the years the e-book has been translated into many languages and exerted a wide effect on such authors as Trevor Ravenscroft and Jean-Michel Angebert, however it hasn't ever seemed in English beforehand.

Rahn observed Parzival now not as a piece of fiction, yet as a historic account of the Cathars and the Knights Templar and their guardianship of the Grail, a “stone from the stars.” The campaign that the Vatican led opposed to the Cathars turned a battle pitting Roma (Rome) opposed to Amor (love), during which the Church triumphed with flame and sword over the natural religion of the Cathars.
