Chapter Summary

This chapter talks about Waldensians’ western preachers, whose lives and beliefs are far better known than those of their eastern counterparts. The most precious testimony is the Morel and Masson report, in which the two preachers speak freely of the pastoral body to which they belong. The chapter looks at those men who, in religious matters, guided the Waldensian population. Unlike their counterparts in Central or Eastern Europe, the Waldensians from the Romance lands did not call their preachers “Brothers”, or “lords”, but “barbes”. By conflating all available sources, both printed and in manuscript, the author attempts to draw up a list of barbes that now peruses in an attempt to gain an overall view of the body of preachers in the western community of Waldensians.

Keywords: Authorised Testimony; barbes; Morel and Masson report; Romance lands; Waldensians’ western preachers
