Utrechtsche Vragen (Utrecht Questions), the twelve questions drawn up at Utrecht, probably by the Reformed pastor Cornelis Gentman, for the examination of Mennonites by the magistrates to establish whether they were orthodox, especially with regard to Socinian views, and to be tolerated. These "questions," sometimes cynically called "Geuzenvraagen" by the Mennonites, were applied at Utrecht in 1661, Middelburg 1665, Deventer 1669, and a few other places. They are printed in Blaupot ten Cate, Groningen, v. II, 205-13.
