Bogomils – A heretical movement that originated in the Middle East, was active in the 10-12th centuries, and can be found today in Bulgaria, and the northern regions of the Balkan Peninsula. The movement also became popular in some regions of the Holy Roman Empire. They explained occurrences and incidents in nature as manifestations of the struggle between God’s two sons, Good and Evil. They regarded the social order and other institutions of the time as the work of Satan. In the 13th century their center was in Bosnia, and their teachings reached the southern parts of Hungary. Among the Hungarian kings Lajos I (Louis the Great), Zsigmond (Sigismund of Luxembourg) and Mátyás I (Matthias Corvinus) fought against them. – B: 1386, T: 3240.
