N. Joannes Schuyring, a Reformed minister at Betsterzwaag, in the Dutch province of Friesland, published in 1661 Doolhof der Mennisten, beplant met 84 vruchteloose Bootnen, een Cort Begrijp van de voornaemste Dwalinghen der Mennisten, getrocken uyt hare Schriften, ende kortelyck wederleyt uyt Gods H. Woort, tot dienste van de Verdoolde Schapen onder de Mennisten van Opsterlandt ende andere eenvoudighe Christenen meer. This work, which attacks the Mennonites, tries to refute a number of quotations from the Protocol of the Emden disputation, the books of Twisck, Claes Claesz, Francois de Knuyt, and other Mennonite authors. Schuyring's refutation, approved by the Reformed classis of Zevenwolden and dedicated to the governors of the Frisian district of Opsterland, is picayune and not very convincing.
