Jeremias Felbinger, frequently erroneously listed as a Mennonite by older historians, born at Brieg in Silesia, was a Socinian (after 1642) educator and writer who spent the last years of his life in poverty in Amsterdam. He was for a time rector of a school at Köslin in Pomerania, and later an educator in Helmstadt, Bernstadt, Greifswald, and Wratislav in Poland. For a time he lived at Strasswitz near Danzig as a member of the Socinian congregation there. His only common doctrine with the Mennonites was his rejection of the oath. His most noteworthy writing was the Christliches Handbüchlein (1661), published in Dutch at Rotterdam (1675) as the Christelyke Handboeksken.
