Chapter Summary

This chapter discusses how barbes disappeared altogether in the willed wreckage of medieval Waldensianism. It is quite remarkable that when the Poor of Lyons felt compelled to make their faith public, which they had never done before, they found no better way than to present the traditional text of the Church, an approach radically different from that of the Protestants. The clandestine communities of the diaspora had died; the era of the parishes had begun. The new wave of pastors, in the reformist model, recruited from areas under the influence of the francophone Reformation, was of Calvinist, or, to be more precise, Farelian obedience. There is not a trace to be found of barbes at the beginning of the 1540s.

Keywords: barbes; francophone Reformation; parishes; pastors; Poor of Lyons; Protestants; Waldensianism
