Wouter, a Dominican monk, as early as 1510 in Utrecht, Netherlands, sharply criticized Roman Catholic practices; he was, however, forced to re­cant. But again in 1517 he attacked the Catholic Church, discarded his monastic dress, and traveled through Holland preaching "the truth of the Gos­pel" in a number of Dutch towns. This "Lutheran monk," who fled to Strasbourg ca. 1521, awak­ened a true evangelical spirit in many of his adherents, among whom were Cornelis Hoen and Guilhelmus Gnapheus, and largely opened the way for Sacramentism and Anabaptism. At Delp, where Wouter lived for a time, Da­vid Joris became his follower ca. 1520.
