Wederdopers (Wederdoopers; German, Wiedertäufer) is the name formerly often given to the Mennonites in Holland, e.g., by Guy de Brez and Calvinist opponents of the Dutch Mennonites until the 18th century. Mennonite authors used the word "Wederdopers" only to denote the revolutionary Anabaptists, particularly those of Münster (see Anabaptism).
