Zamersky Filadelphus, a Moravian clergyman, who in 1593 published a large Protestant Postille (sermon book) in the Czech language. In it he speaks of the Anabaptists (Hutterites) and involuntarily gives them the testimonial that "through their economic capability and artistic skill in their crafts they distinguish themselves above all others so that herein they offer an almost astonishing spectacle."
