; For centuries, a small enclave of refugees lives in the Northern Italian Alps seeking to practice the simple Christianity of the Bible. Legends taught them that their beliefs had persisted from the teachings of the Apostle Paul while he was imprisoned in Rome, and that their Christian duty was to cling to those teachings at all cost. The cost was more dear than 21st Century readers can imagine. Centuries of incessant attacks, torture, and exile into unknown lands were the price of their faithfulness. such were the dealings of the Catholic Inquisition persisting for nearly three centuries against these religionsists seeking asylum in the rocky Alps.
They were known as the Waldenses - the people of the mountains. They predated the Christian Reform Movement begun by Calvin and Luther; they memorized books of the Bible to repeat to each other; they printed one of the first Bibles; and outside of Catholic edifices, they built the first known religious meetinghouses. And at all cost, they followed their beliefs. Despite their devotion, sacrifice, and intense bravery, they were eventually overtaken by deceit. Just over a century later, responding to a dream, their descendants were found and taught by Elder Lorenzo Snow.
