Tommaso Guiot was the tailor of Pragelato, a small village in the Chisone Valley in the western Alps. For the religious history of the late Middle Ages this was a special place, a real ‘Valley of the Waldensians’. In 1488 a devastating crusade was directed against them. Inevitably Tommaso was involved. Like many others, he was prosecuted, both before and also shortly after the military attack. But the records of proceedings against him are the only ones that are extant. Why and how did they survive? To answer this, we need to look at other judicial records, now held in the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris (which also contain the proceedings against Tommaso), and to investigate the cultural climates which led to this documentary survival. While the long and persistent repression led by the Friars Minor is the broader context for these prosecutions, the records themselves cast new light on many things – on members of Guiot’s own family, on the community of Pragelato and, above all, on the Waldensians. The human and judicial experience of one individual, Tommaso, leads us on a via dolorosa, towards the tragic and sorrow-laden experiences of many: on the foundations of one person’s experience, a collective drama takes shape and becomes visible.
