Tielman Jans van Braght(1625-1665) Dutch Mennonite elder most famous for this, his Martyrs' Mirror(1st publ. 1660). "The foreword of his first edition indicates his original plan to print the martyr book of 1631 without change, merely adding martyrs who had been discovered since that date; bet he went much further. He gathered much information form city archives and made successful use of it. He also visited the congregations in South Germany... He was thus able to replace erroneous reports with correct one, and did not hesitate to publish what had been hitherto uncertain or unknown. According to modern standards his method of work was not scholarly; he accepted an published whole articles without checking their accuracy... But on the whole he can be considered reliable; nowhere is there intentional falsification. His reliability was thoroughly established by the late Samuel Cramer... Anyone wishing information concerning our oldest martyrs cannot afford to overlook van Braght, and will be amazed at the breadth of his reading and the fluency of his style. His fluency likely brought him fewer happy hours, for in 1660 he was summoned before the Reformed Church to answer for the boldness of his tone."--H. Westra & N. Zijpp in Mennonite Encyclopedia, I:401 We offer the 2nd American edition, after the Ephrata edition of 1748-49.

LEHMAN, JACOB S.

Jacob Lehman was a Reformed Mennonite. "In this small work is presented the doctrine of a united, Christian church, founded A.D. 33, at jerusalem, upon the day of Pentecost, which has been continued to the present time, with the same life, doctrine, and ordinances. We believe it is the will of God, that his church should be found by all sincere seekers after truth, and to that end he has left us certain marks, or signs, by which the church can be identified. In this tract will be found the following marks of identity: Unity, non-resistance of evil, adult baptism upon faith, and separation from the world and from all forms of worship not in agreement with sound doctrine."--p152.
