War with the Saints focuses on the twelfth century and the Fourth Lateran Council when Pope Innocent III declared the Waldensians heretics. Around this time, more than 80 Waldensians were burned as heretics, and several centuries of persecution followed. Charlotte Elizabeth traces the horror and heroism of the Waldensian peoples as they struggled to survive the crusades threatening to destroy them.

Praise for the Print Edition
She depicts, in glowing colors, the persecutions of the Albigenses, and every page displays the same vigorous style that characterized all her previous writings.
—Hunt’s Merchants’ Magazine and Commercial Review
It paints, in the colors of truth and with the picturesque expression flowing from the writer’s ardent heart, the persecutions of the Albigenses; the condition of that church in the twelfth century, beset on all sides, but apprehending no evil—dwelling lovingly in the midst of a people devoted to the gentler arts of a land of beauty and of song; marked out as a prey by Innocent III, who knew that the circulation of the Word of God in a rural district might shake the pillars of his throne, and grind his gigantic power into dust.

—The Baptist Memorial and Monthly Record
