Chapter Summary

Very learned men have completed careful and accurate accounts of the Anabaptist madness that befell Münster and afflicted it with a most grievous disaster. This chapter highlights that once the savagery and turpitude of the Anabaptist madness is revealed and made public, all good men will reject and shun it and that both civil and ecclesiastical governments will gaze upon the wretched face of the Anabaptist affairs and evaluate accurately what sort of disaster the commonweal suffers as a result of their neglect of duty. This madness of the Anabaptists and the concomitant overthrow of the city of Münster cannot be described accurately by passing over and suppressing the names of those responsible, since by doing so the reliability of the events would not merely be rendered suspect in the eyes of many but would even be weakened and undermined.
