An Inquiry into the History and Theology of the Ancient Vallenses and Albigenses
A refutation of Jacques-Bénigne Bossuet’s History of the Variations of the Protestant Churches, George Stanley Faber’s Inquiry into the History and Theology of the Ancient Vallenses and Albigenses is a thorough account of the history and theology of these two churches. Faber argues that the Waldensians had always held a system of doctrine and practice that was fundamentally the same as that of the Reformed churches of the sixteenth century.
