Gregory IX by his Bulls of 13, 20, and 22 April, 1233, solemnly and officially established the Order of Preachers as the Pontifical Inquisitors for all dioceses of France to check the anarchy and ravages of the heretics. The office of Inquisitor was not, however, by any means confined to the one Order, for we often meet with Franciscan delegates, Cistercians, Canons Regular, as also secular priests.
The Inquisitors at once began to take cognizance of Witchcraft, and indeed it was impossible that they should not have done so seeing that sorcery and heresy were essentially intermingled. Thus a hag of the sect of the Cathari, who belonged to Mont Aime in the Champagne district, was arrested with a whole gang of her co religionists by Robert le Bougre, a Bulgarian (Catharist) convert to Chrisitianity, and subsequently a Dominican. The accused were charged with having employed the aid of demons as well as with their particular heresy, and this crone seems to have been the officer of the coven. On 29 may, 1239, about 100 and 80 persons whose trial had begun concluded within a week were consigned to the flames at Montwimer. Complaints, however, were lodged protesting against so summary a process; Robert was recalled to Rome, deposed from his office, and confined within a monastery for life.
At Toulouse, the hot bed of Catharan evil, in 1275 an Inquisitor, Hugues de Baniols, gave judicial sentence of death by fire on Angele de la barthe, a beldame of some 60 years, who confessed to having had intercourse with an evil spirit from which conjunction she brought forth a monster whom she nourished with the flesh of infants, slain by her or dug up from their graves in remote churchyards.
