Lenart Kerstenzoon was an Anabaptist martyr, burned at the stake on 1 July 1569 at Utrecht in the Netherlands. Lenart, a native of Venlo, confessed during trial that he had often attended Anabaptist meetings; he and his wife Trijntgen had been (re)baptized; he was not willing to recant his faith, and died steadfast.
