    About The Book

    During the sixteenth century’s tumultuous years of religious reformation and revolution, Pilgram Marpeck consistently but discreetly stood up to the ruling powers, calling for freedom of religion and separation of church and state. Coming from a background of wealth and education, he engaged in the major theological struggles of the Anabaptists for an identity that was built on the Bible and had meaning for the world.

    This extensive collection of Pilgram Marpeck’s writings is the most complete English volume of this popular early Anabaptist’s writings. The book includes Marpeck’s Confession of 1532 and The Admonition of 1542, the longest and most detailed statement of the Anabaptists on baptism and the Lord’s Supper. Also included are sixteen of his letters and the preface to his Explanation of the Testaments.

    This is the second volume in the Classics of the Radical Reformation, a series of Anabaptist and Free Church documents translated and annotated under the direction of the Institute of Mennonite Studies.
