Jaarboekje voor de Doopsgezinde Gemeenten (Periodical)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

The Jaarboekje voor de Doopsgezinde Gemeenten in de Nederlanden (Yearbook of the Mennonite Con­gregations in the Netherlands), usually cited as Muller's Jaarboekje, was published by Samuel Muller at Amsterdam, first issue in 1837. In the fore­word Muller explained that it was to be a new edi­tion of the [[Naamlijst der tegenwoordig in dienst zijnde predikanten der Mennoniten in de Vereenigde Nederlanden|Naamlijst, ]]a list of European Mennonite congregations and their ministers, which at first had been published annually, then at longer intervals, the last issue being that of 1829. The new Jaarboekje, under the title "Doopsgezinde Mengelingen" (Miscellanies), presents an extremely val­uable series of historical articles.

The second edition of the Jaarboekje appeared in 1840, covering the years 1838-39, and in addition to the lists and news of the congregations also con­tained valuable historical material, especially the articles by Leonhard Weydmann on the Palatinate. The third and last issue, for the years 1840-50, appeared late in 1850. Its principal con­tents were an extensive account of the history of theological instruction among the Dutch Mennonites, written by Muller.

The Jaarboekje was in a sense continued in the three editions of D. S. Gorter's Godsdienstige Lectuur voor Doopsgezinde, 1854, 1856, and 1858, followed by the Doopsgezinde Bijdragen of 1861-1919.
