Krautschlögel, Jörg (d. 1527)
Jörg Krautschlögel, an Anabaptist martyr of Austria, was put to death at the stake with his wife at Melk, in a town near St. Pölten in Lower Austria in 1527 (Loserth, 151). From the cross-examinations it is known that he was a toll collector at the Danube bridge in Vienna. He was one of the first Anabaptist preachers in Austria. He lived later in Melk and was very zealous for the spread of the movement in that region. In 1526 he won Leonhard Lochmaier, who had been a Catholic priest for eight years, to his faith.
