Revision as of 19:57, 20 August 2013

Fridolin Meyer (Meyger, Meiger) a notary in Strasbourg, Alsace, united with the Anabaptists there in 1528. He was baptized by Jakob Kautz. His home became the occasional meeting place of the members, and he was one of their preachers. Meyer seems to have had earlier connection with persons who later became Anabaptists or were akin to them in spirit. In 1523 he had, for instance, published a booklet by Otto Brunfels, Von der Zucht und underweysung der Kinder, Ein Leer und vermanung (Röhrich, 36). On 15 December 1528 he was cross-examined by Bucer and Capito on baptism. No records of the interrogation have survived, but bound into excerpts from the cross-examination is a four-page manuscript leaflet on the oath that is said to be from Meyer's hand (Röhrich, 36). Meyer was released from prison upon promise not to return to the city, but was seized again at a meeting of the Anabaptists at which Hans Bünderlin and Wilhelm Reublin were also present (Cornelius, 275). In a hearing on 16 March 1529 Meyer denied the intention of the Anabaptists to hold all things in common. He was pardoned, but unless he would desist from his belief he was to leave the city (Cornelius, 273).
