Johann Eysenburg, one of Melchior Hoffman's 16 prophets, who was persuaded by Martin Bucer to join the Reformed Church and was then used by him with Peter Tasch to try to persuade the Anabaptists, and especially Hoffman, to come into the church. On 5 May 1539 they had their first interview with Hoffman, which lasted six hours. Four others of five hours each were held before 26 May; but they were not successful. On 22 May 1539 the Strasbourg authorities sent a letter to the Speyer council, requesting them to receive the two to convert the Anabaptists at Speyer.
