Frick, Georg (d. 1529)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Georg Frick, an Anabaptist martyr of Wirtsburg in Tyrol, Austria, a tailor, was seized in 1529 in Fill near Neumarkt in the Adige Valley, Blaurock's last field of labor. His confession of faith made 16 November 1529 before the court states that he was baptized by the former lay priest Benedikt of Bruneck, and that he was unwilling to renounce his faith. He was therefore executed with seven other Anabaptists—three men and four women.
