Issue 5: Radical Reformation: The Anabaptists

Fanatics, corner-preachers, mob-spirited factionalists, Donatists and revolutionaries were among the nicknames assigned to the 16th century Anabaptists. Their nonconformist, anti-institutional existence sparked an angry era of persecution by mainline Protestants which forced them to become an underground movement. Their beginnings, hardships and near-extinction are recorded in this issue of Christian History.
