Zuberhans (16th century)
Zuberhans, an Anabaptist of Heginsberg near Stuttgart, Württemberg, who confessed on 27 March 1528, that he had been baptized on the previous Christmas Day in Hainbach by Felix [Pfudler], a shoemaker of Esslingen. He related that Felix had taken water in his two hands out of a dish and poured it upon his head as he kneeled, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost. He then gave Felix three kreutzers for the common treasury.
