Chapter Summary

The way the preachers were organised was a direct reflection of the early fourteenth century for they too would appear to have divided into two bodies, although sources are fewer as far as the eastern branch is discussed in this chapter. The general theme returns again and again-the Waldensian preachers were good men. The itinerant nature of the preachers’ mission, to which the author has cause to return when he/she tackle the western branch of preachers, was both an answer and a sign of adaptation to the dispersion of Waldensian families. They tended to settle in groups in new villages, sometimes coming to make up the majority or even the totality of the population. Examples of this happening are found in Austria, Pomerania, in Piedmont, the Dauphine, and later in Apulia, Calabria, Provence or the Comtat Venaissin.
