The Anabaptist Writings of David Joris, 1535-1543
Seventh volume in Classics of the Radical Reformation series. Edited by Gary K. Waite. David Joris (c. 1501-1556) is one of the least understood leaders in the 16th-century Anabaptist movement. Yet during his era he was one of the most important Anabaptist leaders in the Low Countries of Europe. 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. - the publisher.
