After hiding in hundreds of years of historical dust, the troubadour vision of love surfaces into modern consciousness. The troubadour voice echoes ancestral wisdom about the mating dance between the sexes. Also known as the Knights of the Grail, the troubadour quest was about awakening of consciousness through a passionate love relationship. Robert Johnson describes the troubadours as the "offspring" of the Gnostic Cathars. This connection with the Cathars separates this book from other books about the troubadours. By understanding the religiosity of the Cathars, we capture a larger picture into the troubadour art of courting, a view still applicable in modern love relationships.
