Udemans, Godefridus (17th century)

Jump to: navigation, search

Godefridus Udemans, a Reformed pastor at Zierikzee, Dutch province of Zeeland, attacked the Mennonite elder François de Knuyt. In 1618 Udemans was directed, probably by the Reformed classis of Zierikzee, to inquire into the growth of the Mennonites and the "pestilential influence" of their elder de Knuyt in the province of Zeeland and especially on the island of Schouwen-Duiveland. Thereupon Udemans published Noodighe Verbeteringhe, dat is Schriftmatighe Aenmerckingen op seker Boecxken van Fr. de Knuyt (Zierikzee, 1620), a volume of 350 pages.
