After the Frisian-Flemish schism of 1567, by which the stricter Mennonites in the Netherlands were divided into two branches, a few congregations did not wish to side with either group. In Zierikzee they were called "Stilstaanders," elsewhere "Neutralists." (The name is found in A. Montanus, Kerkelijke Historie van Nederland, 197.) The Neutralists were numerous in the district of Baarderadeel in Friesland, where the name was used as late as the 18th century.
