Cuntz Torsel, a miller at Bussbach near Bayreuth, Bavaria, Germany, confessed at his cross-examination that Fritz Weigel had convinced him of the truth of Anabaptist teaching. He knew nothing more about him. Further he said that one should believe in none but God and not any saint. He had preached that one should avoid worldly pleasures, not go to taverns, but believe in Christ and serve God. In 1545 he was in prison at Neustadtlein, Kulmbach district of Bavaria.
