Motvs Monasteriensis Libri Decem
Shoults Gb 1546 F
The Münster Rebellion occurred between February 1534 and June 1535; an abortive attempt by radical Anabaptists (so-called ‘re-baptisers’; Wiedertäufer), to form a commune in that city; it was to be the ‘New Jerusalem’. Crushed, it was the last open revolt in the aftermath of the Lutheran Reformation. Persecution of the sect followed. Motvs Monasteriensis Libri Decem (1546) is an epic poem based on Johannes Fabricus’s first-hand knowledge of the troubles in Münster.
