Vianen, a small town formerly in the Dutch province of South Holland and since 2002 in the province of Utrecht (coordinates: 52° 0′ 0″ N, 5° 6′ 0″ E). Vianene was formerly the seat of a small Flemish Mennonite congregation. In 1649 it had no preacher and was served by the church of Utrecht. Gijsbert Gerritsz of Vianen signed the Verbondt van Eenigheydt for the congregation in 1664. The congregation seems to have died out soon after. At any rate it had dissolved by 1700.
