Anthoni Roggenacher, a furrier of Schwyz, Switzerland, and his wife Dorothea were among the members of the first Anabaptist congregation at Zürich in 1525-26. Roggenacher, who was baptized by Blaurock on 26 February 1525, had given 100 crowns to the church, "that there might be no want." Interrogated concerning this gift he declared before the government officials that it was not his view that the believers should hold their property in common (das guot zuosammen schütten). In March 1526 he was in prison at Zürich with Felix Manz and others, but they escaped. Probably he was soon rearrested and recanted.
