Origins

Founders

Due to Anabaptism's disparate origins, the movement's founders cannot be easily identified. Most scholars, however, point to three centers of early Anabaptist ferment: in Zurich, led by Felix Mantz and Conrad Grebel; in south Germany, led by Hans Hut and Hans Denck; and in north Germany and Holland, led by Melchior Hoffman.
