The Martyr's Mirror, which was one of the early books printed and bound
at the Ephrata Cloisters in the 1780s, I believe it was, has many
stories about the horrific things that were suffered by the early
Anabaptists. It is still in print today and some very interesting
reading is to be had there. It runs some 1500 or so pages, more horror
than I could take in one dose.
