Product Description

An inspiring collection of source materials concerning Hans Landis and his era, transcribed, translated, and annotated. The memory of Hans Landis, a rugged Anabaptist farmer living a half-day's walk from the city of Zurich, Switzerland, remains alive among Mennonites and Amish
nearly four centuries after his execution for his faith in 1614. His story is briefly given in the Martyr's Mirror and in a martyr ballad in the Ausbund. A hymn and tune bearing his name is commonly used among the Amish. This book offers extensive information about the work, court trials, and death of Hans Landis, as well as insight into the religious, social, and political atmosphere
