The Languedocian inquisition thus becomes a case study of the attempts by medieval authorities to increase their institutional effectiveness and thereby to strengthen their power through greater control over their subjects.
Given goes so far as to argue that in Languedocian society "various forms of Languedocian social organization were marked by certain characteristic forms of social strain and that these patterns of strain helped the inquisitors to pry apart social organizations that might otherwise have effectively resisted them" (p.
Although the medieval Languedocian inquisition was a powerful institution, Given rightly and convincingly stresses the constraints under which it operated and the limits to its claims.

But it was the Troubadours to bring glory and fame to this first modern European language, between the XI and XII centuries: Occitan is a multi-dialect language (as all the others) as can be divided into four major families: North-Occitan, Gascon, Languedocian, and Provençal.
The term «Occitan», in use since the Middle Ages, is the only one able to define the language as a whole, and in full respect of all the various dialect forms.
It also being true that during the centuries Occitan has been called different names: Limousin, Gascon, Languedocian, Provençal, or the detrimental «patois» which has often confused a dialect with the language as a whole.

Languedocian remains the most unchanged, as it is the least in contact with foreign influence.
Languedocian is a very interesting language because it is a metaphorical and geographical center of gravity between Spanish, Latin, French, and Catalan and their respective locations.
In language, an example of this is the auxiliary verb “have,” as in “I have eaten.” French’s “avoir” turned into Languedocian’s “aver” (both are used as auxiliaries and noting of possession, similar to English), and the convergence occurs where Languedocian meets Spanish.

From the grammarian Loís (Louis) Alibèrt, it is the heir of the Middle Ages scripta adapted to the modern language first by the Abbot Ros (Roux, a Limousin), Prosper Estiu and Antonin Perbòsc, and finally by Loís Alibèrt who published a grammar and a dictionary for the Languedocian dialect.
The transcription of Languedocian was studied by Loís Alibèrt.
This implies the rebuild of the subjunctive present which is very differentiated at the very inside of Languedocian, for ex.

 Château de Belles Eaux - Caux - Pezenas - France - wines of coteaux du Languedoc : wine growery
This Languedocian domain as well as its cellar, which dates back to the XVIIth century, owe their name "Belle Eaux" to all the sources that emerge there.

he paintings of Frédéric Bazille reflect the intense brightness of the Languedocian hill sides ; that of the Domaine de Belles Eaux benefits from the Mediterranean climate and at the same time a particularly favorable southwesterly exposure.

The Languedocian Sphex frequents these points, not in tribes congregating at the same spot when nest-building begins, but as solitary individuals, sparsely distributed, settling wherever the chances of their vagabondage lead them.
Even as her kinswoman, the Yellow-winged Sphex, seeks the society of her kind and the animation of a yard full of workers, the Languedocian Sphex prefers isolation, quiet and solitude.
Graver of gait, more formal in her manners, of a larger size and always more sombrely clad, she always lives apart, not caring what others do, disdaining company, a genuine misanthrope among the Sphegidae.

 Glugea anomala   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-18)
These preliminary observations, compared with earlier description given by Berrebi (1978) for one microsporidian species parasite of the same host caught in languedocian lagoons (France), enabled us to conclude that we are in presence of the same species which is now called Glugea anomala (Moniez,1887).
However we can notice some differences which concern the following points: in his work, Berrebi (1978) described two types of xenoma, small ones (200 µm), located in the gut and big ones (1.5 cm), situated in the general cavity.
Therefore, other investigations in Tunisian inshore areas are necessary to confirm that the languedocian and the tunisian microsporidian parasites of the sand smelt belong to the same species.

To the rapacious and profligate she offered the plunder of fertile plains and wealthy cities.
Unhappily, the ingenious and polished inhabitants of the Languedocian provinces were far better qualified to enrich and embellish their country than to defend it.
