Dingentgen (Digna) was a Dutch Anabaptist martyr, whose official name was Baudinken (Baudewijnken) Het; van Braght calls her Dingentgen van Hondschoote (Honschoten). She was originally from the region of St. Winnoxbergen, Flanders, was 30 years of age and unmarried. She was living in Hondschoote, Flanders, and had been baptized in this town by Paulus van Meenen in 1568. On 4 December 1572 (Martyrs' Mirror gives no date), she was publicly burned at the stake on the Vrijdagsmarktat of Ghent, Belgium, together with Martin van der Straten, Adriaen Rogiers, and Mattheeus Bernaerts.
