Le comunità valdesi erano organizzate su due livelli: vi erano i "perfetti" o "barba" (che significa "zio", in contrapposizione al "padre" cattolico) che seguivano i tre voti monastici di povertà, castità, e obbedienza ed erano predicatori itineranti, e i semplici fedeli, che erano detti "amici" o "noti"
