Waldensian Evangelical Church
The church was founded in the 12th century, and centuries later, after the Protestant Reformation, it adhered to Calvinist theology and became the Italian branch of the Reformed churches. As such, the church is a member of the World Communion of Reformed Churches.
In 1967 the Waldensian Church, which has now 30,000 members in Italy (plus some 15,000 affiliates in Argentina and Uruguay), was a founding member of the Federation of Evangelical Churches in Italy (FCEI). In 1974–1979 the CEV joined forces with the Italian Methodist Church (5,000) to form the Union of Methodist and Waldensian Churches. In 2009 it made a pact with the Assemblies of God in Italy, which is the single-largest Protestant church in the country.
