  • Title: Donne valdesi nelle fonti della repressione tra XV e VI secolo [In 1487 the papacy authorized a crusade against the Waldensians in Dauphiny. Following this campaign, inquisitors strove to eradicate heresy. Among those questioned were several women, some themselves considered heretical, not just kin of heretics. These testimonies cast light on the impact of the women who survived the crusade, some of them widows of the slain. Title note supplied by Feminae.].
