The witness of

The Tenth Century

of Christianity

regarding the Sabbath of the Lord.

J. F. Coltheart. 1954.

Some obvious spelling mistakes in the quotations and their sources have been rectified.


 

Scotland:

"They worked on Sunday, but kept Saturday in a Sabbatical manner."

"A History of Scotland from the Roman Occupation,"
Vol. 1, p. 96, Andrew Lang.

 

Church of the East: Kurdistan

"The Nestorians eat no pork and keep the Sabbath. They believe in neither auricular confession nor purgatory."

Schaff-Herzog, "The New Encyclopaedia of Religious Knowledge,"
art. "Nestorians."

 

Waldenses:

"And because they observed no other day of rest but the Sabbath dayes, they called them Insabathas, as much as to say, as they observed no Sabbath."

Luther’s "Fore-Runners" (original spelling), pp. 7,8.

 

Waldenses:

Roman Catholic writers try to evade the apostolic origin of the Waldenses, so as to make it appear that the Roman is the only apostolic church, and that all others are later novelties. And for this reason they try to make out that the Waldenses originated with Peter Waldo of the twelfth century. Dr. Peter Allix says: "Some Protestants, on this occasion, have fallen into the snare that was set for them... It is absolutely false, that these churches were ever founded by Peter Waldo... It is a pure forgery."

"Ancient Church of Piedmont," pp. 192. Oxford: 1821.

"It is not true, that Waldo gave this name to the inhabitants of the valleys: they were called Waldenses, or Vaudes, before his time, from the valleys in which they dwelt."

Id., p. 182.

On the other hand, he "was called Valdus, or Waldo, because he received his religious notions from the inhabitants of the valleys."

"History of the Christian Church," William Jones, Vol. II, p. 2.
