Oberlehen and Oberpenning (Oberpanning), villages in the Tyrolean districts of Kitzbühel and Hopfgarten, Austria. Upon the request of the clerk Hans Finsterwalder the imperial government at Innsbruck sent him detailed instructions on 2 April 1528 on how to deal with penitent Anabaptists and those who reported to the authorities. The instructions were as follows: Leaders and baptizers should be put to death. Special efforts should be made to apprehend the preacher Pauls and his successor Hans Rat, who had been so brazen as to hold meetings at Münichau, the castle of the suspect Helene von Freyberg, for which she was to be called to account by the Innsbruck authorities. The possessions of 30 fugitive Anabaptists were to be confiscated. The houses in which Anabaptist meetings were held in Oberpanning, Taurer, Seebach, Oberlehen, Bühel, and Pfaffenberg, and Schussling at Münichau should be burned or torn down, unless they were in such a location that other houses would be threatened thereby, to set an example, as had already been done in the Rattenberg district. If it should not be possible to destroy them, they should be confiscated and held for further instruction.
