Dülmen is a town located southwest of the city of Münster in North Rhine-Westphalia, Germany (coordinates: 51° 49′ 51″ N, 7° 16′ 42″ E), in which Bernhard Rothmann introduced the Reformation in 1533. On 8 September 1533, Bishop Franz of Waldeck had two preachers of this movement arrested. That the Anabaptist movement had also gained a foothold here and that a group survived after the collapse of the movement in Münster is indicated by the fact that even at the beginning of the 17th century, after the severe activity of the Counter Reformation, at least one Anabaptist is reported to have resided here.
