Cornelis of Culemborg (Kulenborg), a Dutch city south of Utrecht, whose official name was Cornelis Aertsz de Man, an Anabaptist martyr, unmarried, was held a prisoner at Culemborg for three years, tormented by all sorts of attempts to convert him by priests, monks, and prominent clergymen; and then, remaining steadfast, was burned on 13 August 1552 (or perhaps 1562). Van Braght (Martyrs’ Mirror) closes the account with a reference to a song about his death, which has, however, not been found. The Veelderhande hiedekens (1569) con­tains a song concerning his death, "Het is wel te beclagen" (It is a pity).
