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. It had been destroyed, but early in the century Raymond de Pereille had rebuilt it, and for forty years he held it as an asylum for heretics, whom he defended to the utmost of his ability.

Not less significant is the fact that on their return to Montsegur the murderers were hospitably entertained at the Chateau de Saint-Felix by a priest who was cognizant of their bloody deed.
