Johann Peter Müller, a Dutch Mennonite minister, was born at Amsterdam on 24 September 1829. He studied theology at the Mennonite Seminary in Amsterdam, served the congregations of Mensingeweer 1854-1857, Rotterdam 1857-1861, retired for reasons of health in 1861, then served at Zwartsluis 1867-1872, and Emden 1872-1904; then he retired. In 1869 he received the title of Doctor of Theology at the University of Leiden. He is the author of the books, Geschiedenis der ontwikkeling van het christologisch dogma in de Grieksche Kerk (his doctoral dissertation) and Die Mennoniten in Ostfriesland vom 16. zum 18. Jahrhundert, a work which was unfortunately not completed. The first part was published at Emden in 1887; the second part without place or date of publication. Müller also published Drei Predigten (Emden, n.d.-1890). He was influential in the formation of the Vereinigung (Conference of German Mennonite Churches), after an attempt to form such a union at Friedelsheim in 1874 had failed. Johann Peter Müller was married to M. Th. Rutgers of Baflo, Groningen; his son Paulus Müller (1863-1924) was director of a publishing house at Amsterdam. Johann Peter Müller died 25 March 1907.
