Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the early Anabaptists of the south-the Grebel circle of Zurich, Michael Sattler, the South German Anabaptists, Hans Denck, and Balthasar Hubmaier. Comparing the Swiss and South Germans tends to both reconfirm their distinctive identities, but also to indicate the limits of their differences. The chapter deals with Pilgram Marpeck the most prominent Anabaptist leader of the second generation whose following ranged over the entire region and reveals debts to both the Swiss and South Germans. It surveys Peter Riedemann's Confession of Faith (1540-1542) in order to sketch the Hutterite appropriation of Paul. Anabaptism was riven by mutual recrimination and excommunication resulting from differences of theology, levels of rigor, and clashes of personality. The Anabaptists made frequent use of Paul in ways that reinforced their Gospel vision of Christianity.
