van Leiden and Munster and the Madness of Anabaptist Rebels

June 25, 1535, Anabaptist Munster is conquered by means of treason. Anabaptist leader Jan van Leiden had hoped the city would be liberated by Easter of 1535, but his prophecy went unfulfilled, and he would be executed in 1536, along with other leaders of the city.  Via CRRS.

  1. I’m pretty sure the episode of the Hardcore History podcast titled Prophets of Doom is about the Munster rebellion of the Anabaptists. It is, as always, a good listen.
