From the Archives: A Letter From the Poor Lombards to the Poor of Lyons Who Are in Germany (1218)
This letter was sent from Lombardy to Lyons to express the outcome of an early meeting, which was held in Bergamo, Italy, between members of two separate Waldensian groups. Though the two groups differed in their approaches to the life of The Poor, the outcome of the meeting was a "new sense of unity."* [* Some descriptions used in these Archives are derived from those given in the text of Giorgio Tourn's You Are My Witnesses. These documents are taken from Tourn's book.]

From the Archives: Waldensian Legend Concerning the Donation of Constantine to Pope Sylvester (date unknown)
This early document tells in a remarkable and fanciful form the Waldensian story of how the Church had come to compromise with the world. Though The Poor were not around until the 12th century, mention is here made of their presence in the 4th century. They could, however, claim solidarity with ancient Christians who rejected worldly wealth and power.

From the Archives: La Nobla Leyczon (The Noble Lesson)
A 15th-century Waldensian poem

From the Archives: A Barba of San Martino (1451)
This is an excerpt from a written account of the heresy trial of Filippo Regis. Waldensians were routinely questioned about their knowledge of the elusive barba—the itinerant Waldensian spiritual leaders. Such accounts are often distorted: it is unlikely a barba would have taught to deny the virgin Birth, or to deny that "the sons" could perform miracles.

From the Archives: Subjects Discussed at the Meeting at Angrogna
(or, the Confession of Chanforan) 1532
