Peter Kranewetter (Pieter Kraneweter), a Hutterite martyr, was executed in 1533 (not 1536 as in Martyrs’ Mirror) with Christian Alseider and four companions at Gufidaun, Austria. In prison they wrote two epistles: one to Jakob Hutter and the brotherhood in Moravia, and the other to the brotherhood in the Adige.
