Hans Marquardt, of Wissenhorn, an Anabaptist leader, was a chaplain in Constanz, Germany, about one year, then for three years Protestant preacher in the canton of Bern, Switzerland, joined the Swiss Brethren, and became an effective leader. He was very likely for a while in Memmingen and Moravia. In the summer of 1532 he went to St. Gall, where his sermons had a large following. Here he was captured. After an arrest of eight days he was granted a disputation which lasted three days. With no small skill he defended his views against the mayor Joachim Vadian and the Reformed preachers, Dominicus Zili, Christoph Schappelar, and Jakob Riner. What he said concerning the oath, infant baptism, and the government is not without significance. He was expelled from the city, and all trace of him is lost.
