George Blaurock was one of the founders of the 16th century Anabaptism movement. He was known was the ‘Hercules of the Anabaptists’. He, and his followers, went door to door, church to church, and city to city proclaiming the word of the Gospel and building a steadfast following. As many leaders of faith he experienced suffering and exile for his belief and was eventually burned at the stake near Klausen, Austria on September 6, 1529.
