Kühn, Blasius (16th century)

Jump to: navigation, search

Blasius (Blasy) Kühn (Kaumuff, Khumbauf) was one of the early Anabaptist preachers of the bishopric of Speyer on the right side of the Rhine and in adjacent regions. When persecution grew more violent he led the group around Bruchsal and Bretten, which had gained about 500 adherents by 1530 and 1531, to Auspitz in Moravia.
