In omnibus vero locis ubi manifesti haeretici manent, et Deum et fidem sanctae Romanae Ecclesiae abdicant et blasphemant, credimus quod disputando et exhortando modis omnibus secundum Deum debeamus illos confundere et eis verbo Dominico, veluti Christi et Ecclesiae adversariis, fronte usque ad mortem libera contraire." Innocent III, letter of December 18, 1208 to the Archbishop of Tarragona, Die Register Innocenz' III.
