Michel Leubel was an Anabaptist martyr who recanted in 1532 and then bitterly repented his deed; "he stumbled like Peter and did it against God; his flesh had been weak; but he had acquired grace. Let no man persuade him that water without faith has any value; the covenant and the water must be together, as Peter says; on this faith he would die." On the night of 30 January 1533 he was drowned in the Rhine (court records of Speyer).
