Bakisch, Peter de Lak (16th century)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Peter de Lak Bakisch, a Hungarian noble and land owner, who drew the Anabaptists to his possessions in Unter-Nussdorf. But on 15 May 1548, when the stern mandate of King Ferdinand was issued to the Hungarian landowners "to remove the Anabaptists who had fled to them," Bakisch at once complied. The Anabaptists who had settled on his estate emigrated in part to Moravia where they had come from, and the others to the Rohatetz Forest.
