Signs of heretical protest are evident in the period from 1050–1140, although it is hard to be sure whether they are the result of outside influences or are protests against the new clericalization of society. From 1140, the Balkan influence is clear in the Cathar movement, while the Waldensians were a clear example of a reform movement of an ‘evangelical’ kind. Magic was thought of as relying on the power of the devil, and Jews, heresy and magic were often linked in a pattern of dissent.
