Quaccheri cristiani ecumenici per fare il bene

On this date in 1574 (Jan. 24th), Olivier Willemsz was burned at the stake in ‪#‎Antwerp‬, Belgium. Willemsz was a former Catholic priest who had opened a bookshop on the ‪#‎Steenhouwersvest‬ (a 3-block-long street; see picture) and become a Mennonite. He was arrested with his wife. But she managed to escape, and lived to the age of 85.
