Menno Simons (1608 engraving)

Menno Simons (1496–1561) was a Protestant Reformer from Friesland. Anabaptist church communities named after him are known as Mennonites.


  • For true evangelical faith...cannot lay dormant; but manifests itself in all righteousness and works of love; it...clothes the naked; feeds the hungry; consoles the afflicted; shelters the miserable; aids and consoles all the oppressed; returns good for evil; serves those that injure it; prays for those that persecute it.
    • Why I Do Not Cease Teaching and Writing, 1539
