Jump to navigation Jump to search

Georg Schräffl, an Anabaptist martyr of Rungen in Tyrol, Austria, was executed with his servant at Michelsburg in the summer of 1531. They had been seized by Christoph Ochs, the judge of Michelsburg, with a number of "simple-minded folk," who were released. But Schräffl and his servant were sentenced to death as backsliders.
