The Vaudois were members of a Christian sect founded in Lyon in 1179. The sect was persecuted and targeted over the centuries, with an awful lot of hardship through many incidents with the Catholic church and royal powers. Eventually being left alone, many settled in the Provence and surrounding areas or immigrated to countries such as South Africa.
