Invented with the creation and spread of Christianity, a heretic (in the middle-ages) is every one who did not accept or questioned the Catholic church or its laws. Unlike what the Church spread, Heretics were rarely Satanists or non-believers.
In fact, in many cases, they had a stronger and more realist belief in God than that of the Church followers. It is just that the Heretics believed the Church's ways were wrong and corrupted, and that is why they followed their own way.
Many great people through history were Heretics, and they were punished and executed by the Church.
