Henslein of Stotzingen, an Anabaptist martyr, was beheaded at Zabern in Alsace, France, in 1528. The Martyrs' Mirror gives an admonitory address that he made on the way to the site of execution. He is the author of the song, "Nun heben wir an in Nöten" (No. 42 in the Ausbund).

This is the same person as Stotzingen, Hans (d. 1528)
