Dream of Pope Innocent: Nightmare for Heretics
Pope Innocent III was the most influential pontiff of the Middle Ages. His reign championed now-beloved saints, and left indelible stains on a land once called Occitania. What remains of Innocent’s legacy? What remains of the enemies he sought to destroy?
This spirited film explores conflicts between institutional belief and personal faith, between material power and mystical experience.
Dream of Pope Innocent weaves interviews with authors, historians, theologians, philosophers, and modern-day mystics together with art, music, animation, and stunning locations in Italy and France.
