Jörg Lang. an Anabaptist, was one of the group of Swiss Brethren returning from Moravia who were seized at the border and put into the subterranean dungeons of the castle at Passau. On 25 August 1535 he was cross-examined with some others in the presence of Schröttinger, the cathedral preacher, and the pastor of St. Paul's. But he did not yield. He was probably one of those who "rotted" in these terrible holes in the earth. His wife Eva went the same road of suffering, remaining steadfast at her trial. Their son John presumably suffered the same fate, for the records say he did not give up his faith.
