Goyes, Feycke (17th century)

Jump to: navigation, search

Feycke Goyes was the elder of the (Flemish) Mennonite congregation at Dokkum, Dutch province of Friesland, who in 1643 caused a division in this congregation. A meeting to settle the quarrel was held at Sneek on 4 May of that year and counsel was asked of the Flemish church at Amsterdam. One of the Amsterdam preachers, Tobias Govertsz van de Wijngaard, tried to arbitrate the conflict. Lack of material makes it difficult to determine the nature of this division, which also struck the congregations of Sneek and Bolsward, or to follow its course of the conflict. We know about this quarrel only from some letters found in the [[Amsterdam Mennonite Library (Bibliotheek en Archief van de Vereenigde Doopsgezinde Gemeente te Amsterdam)|Mennonite Archives at Amsterdam]].
