Wilhelm Stupman(n), also called Mottencop (Mottencoup), a glazier, was one of the first Anabaptists in and around Aachen, Germany. According to a letter of 16 August (not July 16, as stated in ME I, 1), 1533, by Duke John III of Jülich to the Catholic bishop of Liége, Stupman, who had been banished from Aachen, had founded at Aachen, Maastricht, and Liége "special sects," which they (that is, the Anabaptists) called congregations; they called themselves "christliche broeder." About the activity of Stupman, who apparently was very influential, further information is lacking.
