    I know you don’t know me, but here’s a suggestion: The Cathars as inspiration for the relaxed attitudes of the Dornish.

      Hey Stephen,
      Welcome and thanks for the suggestion! I will add it to my list. Just to warn you, I love suggestions for articles, but it can take me quite a while (sometimes months 🙁 ) to actually complete them because I work full time and I (typically) need to find new sources, books, etc. for the research.

      But, yes, your idea definitely sounds very intriguing thank you! (Also, I don’t need to know you for you to make a suggestion – it is very nice to meet you now 🙂 ) Please keep commenting and thank you for reading.
      Best regards,
