Year and day as stated. The sworn witness Bernard Fabri de Castilho said that at the request of Arnald Godalh - who later was hereticated and was burned - he received in his own home the heretics Bernarda and Rixen, her companion, heretics, for two nights and a day. And the aforesaid Arnald Godalh brought them food. And he saw with the said heretics Na Mateus Fabri, mother of the witness, and Arnald Godalh, and Peire Cap-de-Porc. Everyone and the witness adored said heretics, bending at the knee saying, "Bless us, Lord, pray to God for us." This was about 6 years ago.

Item. He said that he received three heretics in his own house at Mas-Saintes-Puelles, namely Raimunda Bordes - converted from heresy and sister of Bernard Garsias of Laurac - and her companions, heretics, at the request of the aforesaid Arnald Godalh. He saw there with them Arnald Godalh and Guilhelma, his wife, Peire Cap-de-Porc, and Peire Lavanet and Bernard Garsias, both of Laurac, and Na Mateus, mother of the witness. Everyone and the witness himself adored the aforesaid heretics and ate bread blessed by them. And during this time the aforesaid Peire Lavanet and Bernard Garsias once brought food to the aforesaid heretics, and the aforesaid Arnald Godalh and his wife Willelma brought bread and wine. The aforesaid heretics ate all of it. This was the same period.

Item. He saw in his own house Donat and his companion, heretics, who stayed there for a day and a night, and he saw there with them Arnald Godalh, Peire Cap-de-Porc, Jordanet del Mas, and Mateus, mother of the witness. Everyone and the witness adored the aforesaid heretics there. This was the same period.

Item. He saw in his own house Arnald Prader and his companion, heretics, and he saw there with them Arnald Godalh, Jordanet del Mas, Peire Cap-de-Porc, P. Barrau, Jordan de Quiders, Arnald Garnier. Guilhem Vidal took the aforesaid heretics from there and brought them to Guilhem Vidal' house. This was about 6 years ago.

He said as well that the above-mentioned heretics extolled the aforesaid Peire Fabri, brother of the witness, to become one of them, that they can teach him, and make him a good cleric. Then afterwards Peire came to the house of Peire Cap-de-Porc where said heretics were, and he wanted to become a heretic. And the aforesaid Mateus, mother of the witness, came to the house where the heretics were and pulled Peire from there by the hair. This was the same period.

He believed the abovesaid to be good men, true, friends of God, to have good faith, and that one could be saved by them, even though he knew the Church persecuted them. He did not hear the heretics speak errors. It was 6 years ago that he first believed the heretics to be good men, but he did not keep that belief more than 2 years. This was confessed to brother Ferrier at Limoux, and he did not see heretics after that. He has not seen heretics otherwise, nor gave or sent [them anything], nor led, nor attended any heretication by the heretics. He abjured heresy and swore, etc. before brothers Bernard de Caux and Jean de Saint-Pierre, inquisitors. Witnesses: as stated before.
