Hendrik van Maastricht (16th century)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

Hendrik van Maastricht (also called Henrick Caerdemaker) was a Dutch Anabaptist belonging to the revolutionary wing of Anabaptism. He had traveled widely, and places of his activity were Goch, Kleve, Antwerp, Edam, Monnikendam, Amsterdam, and the Gooi-district near Amsterdam. He was arrested in Amsterdam in February 1536. Several times from 26 February until 29 April he was tried and sometimes tortured. His confessions reveal many interesting particulars about the Anabaptist movement in the Netherlands. He had joined the Anabaptists in March 1534, not by being baptized, but by laying on of hands by Claes van Enchuysen.
