 H-Net Review: Ellen Yutzy on Peter Riedemann: Konfessionbildendes Taeufertum im 16. Jahrhundert
In this biography of Peter Riedemann, an influential leader of the Hutterite movement, Andrea Chudaska's methodology is similar to that of Klaus Deppermann's biography of Melchior Hoffman.[1] She quotes Hans-Juergen Goertz's praise of that work, which "'set the standard for a biography that draws together aspects of intellectual and social history'" (p.
Both biographies tend strongly to the intellectual and are structured around the lives and texts of their central figures.
With its detailed analytical style and exhaustive treatment of Riedemann's theology and development as a Hutterite leader, this book should prove valuable for specialists of Anabaptist thought, and the more general sections will benefit those who want a clearer picture of Anabaptism's location in the religious landscape of the sixteenth century.
