Description

Note: Kuchenbecker, Hans (16th century)

Kuchenbecker, Hans (16th century) Hans (Pauli) Kuchenbecker of Hatzbach near Marburg, Hesse, a leader among the Anabaptists in Hesse in the last quarter of the 16th century. He came to Hatzbach ca. 1570, after having earlier lived in Treysa and Homberg, driven from both places because of his Anabaptism. When called before the court at Marburg on 5 February 1577, he freely confessed his faith. In a document of 17 February 1577, he is called "their captain and head, who teaches and preaches for them," although he denied being a preacher and said only that "when they get together they speak together about their faith." Later (examination in June 1578) he admitted preaching at the Anabaptist meetings and justified it. He said at the same time "he and his brethren were Swiss Brethren, they were not agreed with those in Bohemia"; he had been baptized 10 years earlier (1568) by brethren at the Rhine. His testimony on this occasion is very significant material. Nothing further appears in the Hesse records about Kuchenbecker. In 1587 he was still active, however, since TA Hessen prints a brief letter from a Moravian elder, Hans Miller of Stignitz, to "Kuchen Hanssn, who is a Swiss minister."
