During the sixteenth century’s tumultuous years of religious reformation and revolution, Pilgram Marpeck consistently but discreetly stood up to the ruling powers, calling for freedom of religion and separation of church and state. Coming from a background of wealth and education, he engaged in the major theological struggles of the Anabaptists, fighting for an identity built on the Bible and meaningful to the world. This book includes Marpeck’s “Confession of 1532” and “Admonition of 1542”—the longest and most detailed statement of the Anabaptists on baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Also included are 16 of his letters and the preface to his “Explanation of the Testaments.”
