Bekommerden (Anxious or Grieved), also called Bekommerde Friezen or Bekommerde Mennisten, the name given a group of Dutch Mennonites who thought the schisms between the Frisians and the Flemish (1566-1567) were unchristian and unnecessary and therefore sided with neither party. We find them at Harlingen, where the elder Bouwe Lubberts shared their view. Quirijn van der Meulen, an elder at Danzig, also belonged to the bekommerde Mennisten. They were excommunicated by the elders Hans Busschaert and Jacob Pieters van der Meulen.
