Philipp Weber, the name of two early Anabaptists, both named for their profession. One was Philipp Plener (also called Blauärmel), the founder of the Philippite brotherhood in Moravia. The other was Philipp Jäger, the assistant of Jakob Wideman, leader of the Stäbler in Moravia 1528-35. Of this Philipp Jager we learn only, through the Hutterite Chronicles, that he helped Wideman establish the new Bruderhof in Austerlitz.
