More > villages, the descendants of the Cathars and the Vaudois had been living quietly and were among the first to join the new churches. But challenging the spiritual, and in some cases the secular, power of Rome wasn’t without danger; soon the “heretics” were being persecuted, harassed and burned with their seditious books. As the French Kings sided with the Pope, a culture of resistance developed and has remained to these days.
