Prader, Carius (d. 1529)

Jump to: navigation, search

Carius Prader, an Anabaptist martyr, who was put to death in the territory of Salzburg, Austria, in 1529. He was locked into a house with several other Anabaptists, which was then set afire. Van Braght gives no further particulars. Zieglschmid's (Chronik, 66) suggestion that he is identical with Eucharius Binder is very plausible.
