Georg Wünsch, born 29 April 1887, died 22 November 1964, was instructor in Systematic Theology (1922-1927), and professor of ethics and apologetics at the University of Marburg 1927- . He was a theological leader of the Religious Socialists in Germany, a disciple of Ernst Troeltsch. In two of his books he treats Anabaptism briefly. In Evangelische Ethik des Politischen (Tübingen, 1936), pp. 202-246, he has a chapter "Anabaptism, Related Groups, and Successors," which treats Müntzer, Hoffman, the Anabaptist congregations (includes Mennonites and Hutterites), English Revolution parties (Independents, Quakers, and Levellers), and Moravians. Evangelische Wirtschaftsethik (Tübingen, 1927) also treats the Anabaptists.
