Leonhard Boltzinger (Poltzinger), an Anabaptist martyr, was seized in 1590 near Julbach in Bavaria. He was taken to Braunau, where he languished in the dungeon for 23 weeks. All attempts to make him recant failed; the most brutal torture was of no avail. On 18 March 1591 he was therefore beheaded at Julbach near Braunau. A hymn was written to commemorate his death, with his name in acrostic, beginning "Lasset uns von ganzer Seel lobsingen dem Gott Israel."
