Pieter van Beringen (Pieter met den creupelen voet = Peter with the lame foot), an Anabaptist martyr, a cloth dresser, was burned at the stake on 27 August 1555 at Antwerp, Belgium. Neither the Offer des Heeren nor van Braght's Martyrs' Mirror gives the exact date or the method of execution. He was put to death with Hans Borduerwercker, Jan Droochscheerder, and Frans Sweertveger. Their names are found in hymn No.16 of the Lietboecxken: "Aenhoort Godt, hemelsche Vader"  (Hear, O God, heavenly Father).
