Revision as of 14:40, 23 August 2013

Jan Styaertsz and his cousin Pieter were Anabaptist martyrs, beheaded in 1538 at Vinderhout, near Ghent, Belgium. They lived first at Meredor (Merendrée) in Flanders. Because they were dissatisfied with the Catholic Church and its doctrines, they traveled to Germany (to Münster?), because they had heard that there was "a better faith." They were baptized in Germany, but soon they were disappointed and returned to Flanders. Shortly after their return they were arrested. Their prison was a filthy pit full of vermin which ate their food and their clothes.

Van Braght, Martyrs' Mirror, also reports that Jan, falling ill, was allowed to go home for nursing. He did not flee, but after his recovery obediently returned.
