Hans Brael (Brail), an Anabaptist martyr, who was arrested a few days before Ascension Day, 1557, in the Puster Valley (Austria). He was tortured severely several times, and the dungeon was so damp that his clothing rotted. He was held for two years, and then sentenced to the galleys (1559). However, on the way he managed to escape and rejoin the congregation of believers.
