Rem Pieters (Rem de Pelser), a Dutch Anabaptist, who was very active by preaching in Amsterdam in 1534. He was arrested and charged with preaching and possessing forbidden books, among which is mentioned the "Deutsche Messe" by Oecolampadius. The sentence was remarkably mild: Rem was banished from Amsterdam for six years. Rem undoubtedly belonged to the revolutionary wing of Anabaptism. He was later at Monnikendam, from where he was banished in December 1535. About his further life nothing is known.

Rem van Hoorn, a follower of David Joris, who was active at Alkmaar, North Holland, is probably identical with Rem Pieters.
