Ulrich (d. 1537-38)
Ulrich, an Anabaptist martyr executed at Bern, Switzerland, in late 1537 or early 1538. He was a farmer of Rügsau in the canton of Bern. Particulars are lacking. Wolkan mentions an Anabaptist elder Ulrich who about 1535 baptized at Urban in Moravia. This may have been the same person.
