Soest, a town in Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany, about 30 miles south of Münster (coordinates: 51° 34′ 16″ N, 8° 6′ 33″ E), was visited in October 1534 by eight apostles sent out by Jan van Leyden to convert its citizens. Among the apostles were Johann Dusentschuer, Hendrik Slachtscaep, and Hendrik van Maren. Soon after their arrival, they were all arrested and, on 23 October 1534, beheaded (not 21 October 1543, as is erroneously stated in The Mennonite Encyclopedia: II, 112). Anabaptism could not develop in Soest.
