Ried im Innkreis (Oberösterreich, Austria)

Jump to: navigation, search

Ried im Innkreis, a town (population of 12,000 in 1959; 11,511 in 2005) in Upper Austria, until 1779 and again in 1810-16 belonging to Bavaria. Anabaptism came to Ried in the early days of the movement. Wolfgang Brandhuber, of Passau, had won a group here for the Anabaptist cause in 1528. In the 1530s the Philippites settled here after their withdrawal from Moravia; Riedemann visited them in Ried. But in the early 1540s they disappeared from the town. Hutterite missioners were martyrs here: Hans Blüetl 1545, Hans Aichner 1585, Georg Bruckmaier 1585, Wolf Rauffer 1585, Marcus Eder 1605, Hänsel Poltzinger 1605.
