Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of names mentioned in the book Narrative of the Anabaptist Madness: The Overthrow of Münster, the Famous Metropolis of Westphalia. It contains a list of recent volumes in the book series Studies in the History of Christian Traditions. One of the most lurid events of the Reformation was the takeover in 1534 of the city of Münster by a variety of Anabaptists who proceeded to institute polygamy and a form of collective ownership of property and to elect a Dutch tailor as their king. The major contemporary history of the Anabaptist kingdom of Münster is the massive Latin history written by the schoolmaster Herman of Kerssenbrock, a work that is disparaged more than read by modern scholars.

Keywords: Anabaptists; Christian traditions; Münster
