Schelte Aedelezoon, an Anabaptist martyr, from Friesland, Netherlands, was burned at the stake at Leeuwarden, the capital of Friesland, on 13 May 1553, because he was rebaptized, opposed the Roman Catholic sacrament of the Mass, saying "that all that is done in the (Catholic) church is idolatry." He refused to recant and died loyally for his faith.
