Töllinger, Christine (d. 1529)
Christine Töllinger of Penon in Tyrol, Austria, an Anabaptist martyr, a widow, was seized with four brethren and three sisters at Fill in the Adige Valley. They were taken to the castle and cross-examined. Christine confessed that she was baptized in her home by Georg Blaurock; the bread of the Mass is merely bread; children are saved without rebaptism; with God's help she would die on the confession of her faith. They were all executed on 18 November 1529, at Fill.
