Anabaptists


Explanation:
Anabaptists
name applied, originally in scorn, to certain Christian
sects holding that infant baptism is not authorized in
Scripture, but that baptism should be administered only
to believers. Prominent in Europe during the 16th cent.,
they were persecuted everywhere. Their chief leaders
were Thomas MüNZER and JOHN OF LEIDEN.
MENNONITES and Hutterites are descended from them.

Hope that helps!
