The Confession of the Waldensians 1532 - a Reformed Creed?
The question is posed as to whether the Confession of the Waldensians (1532) belongs to the Reformed creeds. Up till now it has not been included in any collection. Read carefully, it has the exact form of theses for disputation. Every theological thesis has three steps: proposition, declaration of conformity with the Scriptures, and scriptural proof. It is also a Reformed confession, as the Zurich Theses of 1523 are. Its content is not strange. To treat ethical questions means to put aside the rigorism typical of the Waldensian lifestyle. Its relation to the Roman church was more or less clarified. The concilium generale of Chanforan decided to join the community of Reformed churches.
