The Anabaptists were not purely religious thinkers like the fourteenth-century mystics; they envisaged a new form of society. Nor were they isolated intellectuals like the humanist scholars. On the contrary, they were a movement of thousands of ordinary peasants and craftsmen. I have, therefore, chosen to approach the Anabaptist movement from the point of view of social history. - Preface.
