That lecture, titled “‘Ob er auch ein widerteufer im herzen habe’ – Die Täuferbewegung(en) in Hessen zur Zeit der Reformation” was subsequently published in an Ebernburg Heft (53/2019) together with the contribution of my colleague, Dr. Astrid von Schlachta, whose lecture I attended in October 2018.
