Women's Resources for Loan

Profiles of Anabaptist Women: 16th Century Reforming Pioneers by C. Arnold Snyder and Linda Huebert Hecht, Wilfrid Laurier, 1996.

During the upheavals of Reformation, one of the most significant of the radical Protestant movements emerged--that of the Anabaptist movement. Profiles of Anabaptist Women provides lively, well-researched portraits of courageous women who chose to risk persecution and martyrdom to pursue this unsanctioned religion--a religioun that, unlike the established religions of the day, initially offered them opportunity and encouragement to proselytize and take on leadership roles.

These personal stories of courage, faith, commitment, and resourcefulness interweave women's lives into the greater milieu, relating them to the dominant male context and the socio-political background of the sixteenth-century reformation.

  1. Hi, I would really like to get involved in this site, but I'm not sure how to do this. I've read the writeup in the Can. Mennonite, about this group, and being a Mennonite myself, I would like to share with you here. Laurie

  2. Hello. Great to hear from you. Liz Koop is going to be posting on this blog the Canadian Mennonite article, likely today, and you will be able to respond at that time. Erna Neufeldt
