—Review of Theology and Philosophy
These ‘Anabaptists’ were the advance-guard of the Reformation—those in which the formative principles of evangelical religion found their purest expression; and their leaders were at least the peers of those whose names have come down to us clothed with more glory merely because the accidents of the time gave them more success. A carefully written and instructive volume.
—The Princeton Theological Review
The illustrations are well executed, and the biography is written with judgment and good taste.
—New York Observer
One needs to make a special study of this much-despised and slandered sect to form any conception of the importance of their influence, the heroism and, in many cases, sanctliness of their lives, and the atrocity of the treatment they received at the hands of the Catholics and Protestants. The volume is an exhaustive treatment of its subject, and an important contribution to history.
