Lembach (Oberösterreich, Austria)

Jump to: navigation, search

Lembach is a government district and village in the Rohrbach area, Upper Austria. Anabaptist meetings are mentioned here in 1527. Matthias Dorsauer, who was arrested in 1528 at Passau, baptized here. Then there is no further mention of Anabaptists. Probably none of the three places in Lower Austria having this name is meant in the Hutterite records, but rather (Neu) Lengbach  in the Vienna Woods (Wienerwald).
