Capture of Hans van den Wegen, Ghent, 1570. Engraving by Jan Luiken in Martyrs Mirror, v. 2, p. 528 of Dutch edition. Scan provided by Mennonite Library and Archives
Hans van der Weghe, an Anabaptist martyr, was arrested at Ghent and burned at the stake with two girls, Janneken van Hulle and Janneken van Rentegem. From prison he wrote four letters which admonish his relatives and friends to a life of penitence and faith, that they might be partakers of eternal life. Hans was a native of Ronse (Renaix) in Flanders. His brother Jacob van der Weghe was burned at Ghent in 1573.
