Example text

Little is known concerning this first period, during Vaudès’ lifetime. All we know is that the first Waldensians were men and women, all poor, beggars, preachers, and all, apparently, from the laity. A warm, fraternal atmosphere doubtless reigned in this early community, despite occasional rifts and tensions that are inevitable in any human group. But these fellows were firmly linked together by their prophetic mission to adopt evangelical poverty and preach the Word of God. When the excommunication of Verona fell in 1184, a good number of the Poor of Lyons must have been surprised, then scandalised.

We should note, however, that at this point they were being condemned for disobedience towards the ecclesiastical authorities, not for deviation from doctrine. This situation went on for the next thirty years or so, both stable and ambiguous. The preachers were marginalised, having been condemned, which paradoxically encouraged them to expand outside the diocese of Lyons, yet at the same time they were popular, for the simple lives they led were in keeping with their word, which won them the approval of their followers.
