Denys (Dionys) van der Schuere (Schure, Scheure), (also Verschuren), a Dutch Mennonite preacher and elder, died 1673 at Haarlem, who served the Waterlander congregation of Amsterdam 1639-1671 and Haarlem 1671-1673. During his Amsterdam period he conducted at the same time a printing office and bookshop. Among his editions are Bibles and Schabaelje's Vereenigingh van de Principale Artijckelen das Geloofs. His descendants were also printers and booksellers at Amsterdam. Van der Schuere descended from a Mennonite family that had emigrated from Flanders.

In 1640, after Joost Hendriksz had attacked the Waterlanders and accused them of holding unbiblical views concerning the satisfactory death of Christ, Denys van der Schuere and Jacob Cornelisz van Dale, his co-preacher in the Amsterdam Waterlander congregation, published Korte Vertooninghe van de onware beschuldigingen . . . (Amsterdam, 1640). After the death of the Waterlander leader Hans de Ries in 1638 van der Schuere published Lijck-Predicatie over 't Afsterven van Hans de Ries (Amsterdam, 1638).
