Chapter Summary

Through the whole doctrine and saintly way of life of ecclesiastics, the wisdom and authority of the city council and obedience and pious imitation of best burghers, Münster carried on with the religion that St. Swibert first taught and Charlemagne strengthened without admitting any novelty since that time. Courting the public’s fickle acclaim and slandering the priests to commons, these preachers fanned the flames that had first been lit by certain merchants, and these flames, which spread further when no one put them out, quickly set fire to many men of the lowest sort. Although John Tant of St. Lambert’s, Lubbert Kansen of St. Martin’s and John Vinck of St. Ludger’s had sown the word of God for some years without criticism, in this year they began to puke out words that roused the commons against the clergy and civic officials.

Keywords: clergy; ecclesiastics; John Tant of St. Lambert; Lubbert Kansen of St. Martin; Münster; preachers; word of God
