Lemlin, Konrad (d. 1532?)
Konrad Lemlin of
Sintelfingen (called Angelfingen in the Passau
records) was an Anabaptist martyr who had baptized the wife of Michel
(Khumbauf) of Bruchsal, Baden, Germany,
at Barnbach in 1530 and Hans Steuber (Stober) of Durlach, Baden,
in 1531. At the end of 1531 he was seized with his wife Ursula Spanner of
Gmünd and put into the prison in Vaihingen on the Enz, Wurttemberg,
because of his Anabaptist convictions. Because he would not recant he was
burned at the stake. His wife, who also remained true to her faith, was also to
have been executed, but because of her unborn child she was spared; she had to
swear that she would leave Wurttemberg
and never return.
