    Anyone know anything about this? What do you think about it? (It's a very early Anabaptist document apparently from the late 1520s.) Has anyone come across a copy of it and if so where?

    Yours in Christ

    Cheers! Yep, certainly gets the [​IMG] from me too.

    Didn't Zwingli drown 4 of these guys in the River Linner in Zurich? :(

    Yours in Christ

    You need to read "The Martyr's Mirror," a massive 1200 page work that makes Foxes Book of Martyrs seem mild by comparison.

    I've referenced Martyrs Mirror on here before--a great work, both heroic and sad.
