Portrait of David Joris (1501-1556). He was a Delft glass painter who became known as an Anabaptist and heretic. In 1528 he was arrested and sentenced for mocking the sacrament. His tongue was pierced and he was banned from Holland for three years. He then came into contact with Anabaptists, also called Anabaptists or Anabaptists. Shortly afterwards Joris was ordained elder by Anabaptist Obbe Phillips. Back in Delft he received visions in December 1536, from which he concluded that God wanted him to play a major role. From 1538 the persecution against David Joris and his supporters, the Davidjorists, intensified. According to Joris' contemporary Blesdijk, these prosecutions cost the lives of at least a hundred people. David Joris is the author of 't Wonderboeck, among others, first published in 1542 in Deventer. Etching and engraving by Romeyn de Hooghe (1645-1708), after own design. Published in: Arnold Godfried.
