Beheading of 7 brothers, Schwäbisch- Gmund, 1529. Engraving by Jan Luiken in Martyrs Mirror, v. 2, p. 25 of Dutch edition. Scan provided by [http://www.bethelks.edu/mla/holdings/scans/martyrsmirror/ Mennonite Library and Archives]
Pain, an Anabaptist martyr of Swabia, South Germany, was executed with Wolfgang Esslinger, Martin Zehentmayer, and four other Anabaptists at Schwäbisch-Gmünd after a year's imprisonment in 1529 (the Martyrs' Mirror erroneously gives 1531 as the date). Three songs were written to commemorate their death.
