Pieter Eyssen, a Dutch preacher of the Flemish Mennonite congregation of Amsterdam, chosen 28 July 1664, and an ardent antagonist of Galenus Abrahamsz, the prominent leader of this church. When the congregation was divided by the schism of the Lammerenkrijgh into a more liberal Lamist congregation (Galenus Abrahamsz) and a more conservative Zonist congregation (Samuel Apostool), Eyssen joined the latter, serving as a preacher until 1670. In this year, together with his copreacher Isaac van Vreede and a number of members, he left the Zonist congregation because of a conflict and founded a new congregation called De kleine Zon, which however returned to the Zonist mother church in 1679. Eyssen died in 1681.
