Konrad van Bühel (also called Beyhel), an Anabaptist in Strasbourg (Alsace), who was arrested because he visited Melchior Hoffman in prison. On 29 May 1539 he was tried and banished from the city on penalty of death by drowning if he returned. At his trial he said that he had visited Hoffman twice, "because we ought to comfort prisoners." Evidently he was induced to do this by the rumor current among the Strasbourg Anabaptists that Hoffman had recanted under the influence of the former Anabaptists Tasch and Eysenburg. Hoffman assured him that he adhered as firmly as ever to the truth. When Bühel asked how long it would be before the Judgment, Hofmann replied, that he knew of no Judgment Day; there would be times on earth when peace, joy,and righteousness reigned. Furthermore, Melchior admonished him that "he should just be pious and live quietly, keep his marriage intact and create no mobs; for he had no calling for this; he should also inform the brethren not to hold forbidden meetings in the forests, but should rather think of the Peasants' War, of Zwingli in Switzerland, and the Münster rebellion. They should keep the government in mind, especially that of Strasbourg, for it was a pious government."
