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 <em>Verbondt van Eenigheydt</em> for the congregation in 1664. The congregation seems to have died out soon after. At any rate it had dissolved by 1700.
