The Anabaptist Writings of David Joris, 1535–1543

Format: Digital


David Joris (c. 1501–1556) is one of the least understood leaders of the sixteenth-century Anabaptist movements. Yet during his era, he was one of the most important Anabaptist leaders in the Low Countries. Even before the fall of Munster in June 1535, Joris was a consistent advocate of Anabaptist nonviolence, and well into the 1540s, he competed successfully with Menno Simons for followers. This volume contains several of Joris’ tracts, including “Of the Wonderful Working of God,” “Hear, Hear, Hear, Great Wonder, Great Wonder, Great Wonder,” “The Strasbourg Disputation,” and more.
