Schädowitz (Schaidowitz), Moravia, today Žádovice, about 1550 owned by the lord Sigmund von Zastrizil. In 1553 the Hutterites established a Bruderhof here. The Chronik reports the death of a number of preachers at this place, including Paul Glock 1585, Veit Grünberger, and Hans Baldauff 1587. During the Bosckay invasion of 1605-1606, and again during the early years of the Thirty Years’ War the Bruderhof was plundered by hordes of soldiers not fewer than eleven times. When the Hutterites were summarily expelled from Moravia in 1622, this Bruderhof also had to be abandoned.
