The Ecclesiastical History of the Ancient Churches of Piedmont and of the Albigenses

by Peirre Allix (In English works he used Peter Allix.)

Available in:   Docx       ePub      Mobi      PDF


This book was originally published in 1690 by a French Heugenot named Pierre Allix or in English Peter Allix. Click here for information about Peter.  It was actually published as two books, Remarks on the Piedmont churches and Remarks on the Albigensian churches.  In 1821 it was republished with the two books combined into one.   I am following the 1821 version here.

This book was written and published in England but its intended target was Jacques-Bénigne Lignel Bossueti the Bishop of Meaux who was trying to show that Protestantism was recent and variable.  Peter Aillix instead showed that the Waldenses were ancient and consistent. Meaux wanted the Edit of Nantes revoked.  Allix wanted it strengthened but before Peter Allix could finish his book and get it printed the Edit was revoked and Huguenots had to flee France.
