Locren, Pieter van (17th century)
Pieter van Locren was preacher of the Amsterdam Mennonite Lamist congregation 1662- ? . By his radicalism, his Collegiant principles, his Socinianism, and his pugnacity he contributed to the schism in the congregation between the Galenists (followers of Galenus Abrahamsz) and the Apostoolsen (adherents of Samuel Apostool), which became definite in June 1664.
