Also Known As : Esclarmonda de Fois in the Occitan Language or the Langue d’Oc.

Esclaramonde means Clarity (Light) of the World.

MSHistory places her in the late 12th and early 13th century. She, apparently, turned to Catharism on the death of her husband and became especially connected with Château de Montségur. Her manner and date of death are not known for sure but she has been despised by the Catholic Church for quite a long time.

It’s a little weird to find that her story is an almost perfect reflection of that of the newly born (via Dan Brown etc) Mary Magdalene. Esclaramonde, too, spent years living in caves in the South of France and Northern Spain (Catalonia) …trying to escape her enemies!!!!

O.K. Whatever the mainstream say.

P.S. If you don’t understand the significance of the image above, go back to my old blog and several posts made in 2019 about the Red and Yellow Striped Flags and Coats of Arms.

Thank you :o)
