  • From August 20 to 24, a gathering of around 60 Anabaptist leaders from the southern German region will take place in Augsburg with the aim of finding an agreement between the supporters of the Schleitheim article and the radical apocalyptic Anabaptists around Hans Hut . Hut refuses to take back his prophecies, but promises to “not teach them publicly” but only to communicate them to those who privately “desire this themselves” . Since many of the participants in this synod will be martyred in the next few years , the meeting will later be known as the Augsburg Synod of Martyrs .
