    Peter Riedemann

    Peter Riedemann (1506-1556) was an Anabaptist minister at a time when these church reformers were being drowned, beheaded, and burned at the stake by the thousand for their commitment to believers’ baptism, nonviolence, economic sharing, and the restoration of a New Testament Christianity free from state control.
