The consolamentum (or consolament) consists of a ritual practice allotted to the " heretics " Cathare S, mainly the South of France enters second half of the 12th century and the end of the 13th century. This celebration is hardly known for us but by texts anti-heretics of catholic origin or by texts late and thus likely to be far away from reality. The course of the ceremony varies according to the sources. One of the known oldest descriptions comes from a treaty new anti-heretic contained in two manuscripts dated from the end of XIIe or the beginning of XIIIe century, originating in the south of France (Rheims, BM 495 and Troyes, BM 1068):
“Holding the book of the Gospels in its hands, it celebrating exhorts the one or the ones that comes to receive consolament to place all their faith in this consolament and the hope of the hello of their hearts as a God and in this consolament. And thus after one had posed the book on their head, they say seven times the prayer of the Lord, and then celebrating it reads in front of all the Gospel of holy Jean since: “At the beginning”, to this place of the Gospel which says: “The grace and the truth came by Jesus-Christ”. And thus finishes this consolament ".
