Van de Wrake, a booklet by Bernhard Rothmann in Münster, entitled Eyn gantz troestlick bericht vande Wrake . . . an alle ware Israeliten unnd Bundtgeneten Christi . . . durch de gemeinte Christi tho Munster (Münster, 1534), was a writing in which the Anabaptists of Holland were sum­moned to abandon their peaceful attitude and to support the "kingdom of God" at Münster with weapons. Four men distributed the booklet among the Dutch Anabaptists; at Maastricht and else­where it was eagerly read. It had a baleful influ­ence, moving many Anabaptists to take up arms and join the Münsterites. Van de Wrake was re­futed by Menno Simons in Gantsch duydtlijck, bewys tegens . . . Jan van Leyden. Van de Wrake was re-edited by K. W. Bouterwek in Zur Literatur und Geschichte der Wiedertäufer I (Bonn, n.d.-1864) 66-80.
