 Anabaptist   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The older view among Mennonite historians generally held that Anabaptism had its origins in Zürich, and that the Anabaptism of the Swiss Brethren was transmitted to South Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, and North Germany, where it developed into its various branches.
In this view the time of origin is January 21, 1525, when Grebel baptized George Blaurock, and Blaurock baptized other followers.
In English history frequent reference is made to the Anabaptists during the 16th and 17th centuries, but there is no evidence that any considerable number of native Englishmen ever adopted the principles of the Münster sect.
