Doopsgezinde Prenten]'']]    Lubbert Gerritsz (official family name <em>Yserman), </em>a Dutch Mennonite leader in the second half of the 16th century, characterized by his tolerance, the good friend and co-worker of Hans de Ries, with whom he composed the [[Confession of Faith (Hans de Ries, 1618)|Waterlander confession of faith]] which was published at Alkmaar in 1610. He was born at [[Amersfoort (Utrecht, Netherlands)|Amersfoort]], Dutch province of [[Utrecht (Netherlands)|Utrecht]], in 1534; by trade he was a weaver. About 1556 he was converted to the Mennonite principles and soon played a role in   the small Amersfoort congregation.

His congregation being on the Frisian side, he became the minister of the Frisian congregation at Hoorn. Attempts at reconciliation were futile. On the questions of the [[Ban|ban]], [[Marital Avoidance|avoidance in marriage]], and mixed marriages he took the more lenient position. A peace conference in 1578 failed. The stricter views predominated, and he was banned. In 1589 he became the leader of the more lenient <em>(Jonge) </em>Frisians at [[Amsterdam (Noord-Holland, Netherlands)|Amsterdam]].

Lubbert Gerritsz (official family name Yserman), a Dutch Mennonite leader in the second half of the 16th century, characterized by his tolerance, the good friend and co-worker of Hans de Ries, with whom he composed the Waterlander confession of faith which was published at Alkmaar in 1610. He was born at Amersfoort, Dutch province of Utrecht, in 1534; by trade he was a weaver. About 1556 he was converted to the Mennonite principles and soon played a role in   the small Amersfoort congregation. In 1559, when persecution arose in this town, he fled to Hoorn, Dutch province of North Holland, where he was ordained in the same year as elder by Dirk Philips. He was one of the delegates appointed in 1567 to arbitrate the difficulties that had arisen in Friesland which occasioned the great schism between the Frisians and the Flemish. His congregation being on the Frisian side, he became the minister of the Frisian congregation at Hoorn. Attempts at reconciliation were futile. On the questions of the ban, avoidance in marriage, and mixed marriages he took the more lenient position. A peace conference in 1578 failed. The stricter views predominated, and he was banned. In 1589 he became the leader of the more lenient (Jonge) Frisians at Amsterdam. Here he published Verantwoordinghe op die seven Artyckelen. The "Jonge" Frisians in 1591 united with the High Germans, and two years later with the Waterlanders. In 1597 the Reformed Church tried to force him to take part in a disputation; but the mayor Hooft intervened. In 1604 he made another attempt to unite the Flemish and Frisians by writing an epistle to the elders of the Flemish. He died at Amsterdam on 12 January 1612. Anthoni Jacobsz Roscius, physician and preacher at Hoorn, and Lambert Jacobsz, the well-known painter and preacher at Leeuwarden, were his grandsons.

Besides the above Verantwoordinghe Lubbert Gerritsz published the following writings: Sommige andachtighe ende leerachtige gheestelicke Liedekens ende Psalmen Davids, followed by two letters to the Gemeente Godts in Pruissen (Amsterdam 1597, 5th ed. 1649); Sommige Christelijcke sendt-brieven, ghesonden aen diverse particuliere personen . . . (Amsterdam 1599, reprinted 1611 and 1646). In these reprints are also found Vier brieven ende een Tractaet van de Uytterlijcke Kercke. His portrait, painted 1607 by Michiel J. Mierevelt or his co-workers, is now found in the Rijksmuseum at Amsterdam. Joost van den Vondel dedicated a laudatory poem to him.
