Stanislaus Hosius. Image source: Wikipedia Commons
Stanislaus Hosius (Stanisław Hozjusz) was cardinal-bishop of Culm in West Prussia, Germany. He was noted for his hatred of the Protestants; he discusses Menno Simons in his book, Confutatio Prolegomenon Brentii (Antwerp, 1561). He names Hubmaier as the founder of the Anabaptist movement and ridicules the Biblical faith of Menno Simons, who seems "to surpass all his fellow believers in scholarship." He also discusses the Anabaptists in his De origine haeresium nostri (Louvain, 1559).
