    Balthasar Hubmaier

    BalthasarHubmaier
    Balthasar Hubmaier came from Friedberg in Bavaria. As a priest and university professor, he initially rejected any reforms and defended the church's traditions. From 1522, however, he started to engage more intensively with the Reformation writings and disputations in Zurich. Beginning in 1525, he advocated for more radical reforms than even Luther or Zwingli, and had to flee to Moravia. There he became one of the most important theologians of the Anabaptist movement. In 1528, Balthasar Hubmaier was burned at the stake in Vienna. Three days later, his wife Elsbeth was drowned in the Danube.
