Sample text

Christ told his followers “not to swear at all,” although that prohibition had been attenuated and glossed in the church for many centuries (Matthew 5: 33–7). To refuse to swear an oath to tell the truth under interrogation, or to withhold an oath of fealty or allegiance, was to cast oneself into virtual outlawry among other Christians. Yet allegations were persistently made against Lollards and Waldenses, as well as against some radical Hussites, that they would not take even a legal oath. Many heretics, under interrogation, said that to ask for the swearing of an oath, or to swear one, was a sin.

Some later Lollard confessions, and many treatises written against the Waldenses, reeled off a list of rejections of each of the sacraments in turn. g. Tanner, Heresy Trials in . . Norwich, pp. 94–5, 111, 159–60, 165, 176–7, 179, 185, 194, 196–9, 205). While Taborites retained the seven sacraments, they 16 euan cameron took a different approach: every sacrament as currently performed in the church was full of redundant and excessive ceremonial, and needed rigorous pruning and simplification to return it to the primitive ideal.

202–24, 264–74). It would be fascinating to discover how far Waldensian followers absented themselves from patronal celebrations, Corpus Christi processions, or other manifestations of late medieval voluntary religion. In theory they disapproved of them all. All the movements studied in this chapter held that some, most, or all of the Catholic priesthood were contaminated by sin: above all by their abandonment of apostolic poverty, their acceptance of worldly authority, their simoniacal and materialistic practices.
