The early followers of Alexander Mack in Germany, later in America called the Church of the Brethren, first organized at Schwarzenau an der Eder, Germany, in 1708, were frequently called "Täufer" or "Anabaptisten" by their critics and opponents. They actually had much in common with the earlier Anabaptists, as Donald Dürnbach has shown in his doctoral dissertation, The European Origins of the Church of the Brethren (Elgin, 1958).
