Research Points
  • Historically, Anabaptists emerged as radical reformists during the 1520s Reformation.

  • Seven Anabaptist traditions include the Dutch-Russian Mennonites, Swiss Mennonites/Swiss Brethren, Amish, Brethren-German Baptists, Hutterites, Apostolic Christians/Nazarenes, and the Bruderhof. Histories of each are given.

  • Many of these seven branches were shook up in the 1800s and 1900s, with Old Order, Conservative, and mainline expressions emerging.
