When I visited this graveyard in 1989, I was surprised to find that the Bogomils had spread this far south. The Bogomils followed the teachings of Pop Bogomil. It is widely believed that they influenced the Cathari in southern France. Both religious groups viewed the Christian cross as an instrument of torture. Can anyone imagine a religion in the future worshipping a guillotine?
