Anna Maria van Schurman

Anna Maria van Schurman, born in Cologne on November 5, 1607 and died in Wieuwerd (Wiuwert) on May 4, 1678 (or on the 14th), is a poet, artist and scholar of the United Provinces. Fascinated by Jean de Labadie and drawn to the idea of a Christian community of regenerates, Anna Maria van Schurman became his main supporter. After Labadie, in 1666, had been called to the Walloon church in Middelburg, she traveled regularly to Zealand, accompanied by some friends, to attend her sermons and religious exercises.
