IN THE APRIL, 1971 issue of Mennonite Life, we reported about numerous research projects, including M.A . and Ph.D. dissertations. Preceding April issues since 1949 (except in 1961, 1963, 1967, and 1968 when they were in the July issues) contain similar information under the heading "Mennonite Research in Progress." Of special significance in this issue are the "Doctoral Dissertations" and the "M.A. Theses." The list is much longer not only because there was no listing in 1972, bust also because we have been able to acquire new sources of information in regard to the Ph. D., dissertations and M.A. theses in progress. We name particularly the two volumes, Dissertations in History, by Warren F. Kuehl, published by the University Press of Kentucky in 1960 and in 1970, and Dissertation in History, published annually by the American Historical Association. Some selections were also made from the volumes of Index of Graduate Theses in Baptist Theological Seminaries, published by The Historical Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, covering the years 1894-1971.
The listing of additional dissertations has been continued annually in this column. The editors of Mennonite Life will be pleased to receive information about research in progress and dissertations to be included in subsequent issues.
This column also contains a report about the work of the North American Committee for Documentation of Free Church Origins, (NACDFCO). This issue will be sent to all members of the Committee as an annual report. Additional copies of this particular issue can be ordered from the publisher.

What George H. Williams described as the "pious Mennonite" interpretation of Anabaptist history has recently become the "whipping boy" of Anabaptist studies as for examples in Claus-Peter Clasen Anabaptism: A Social History, 1525-1618, (Ithaca, N. Y., 1972), and James M. Stayer Anabaptists and the Sword, (Lawrence, Kan., 1972). The charge that some Mennonite historians went beyond mere rescuing of Anabaptism from an antagonistic historiography to the apologetic use of Anabaptism to develop an identity for 20th century Mennonites is difficult to refute and must be recognized above all by Mennonite historians.
But those who would demythologize Mennonite studies of Anabaptism should be aware of their own presuppositions if they want to be taken seriously. Clasen especially, despite his disclaimers of ideological interest, riddles his volume with dubious conclusions on the basis of his particular value judgments. Thus, following from his commitments to quantitative analysis, he concludes that the importance of a movement can be weighed in the balance of numbers. And given his own pragmatic standards, he judges Anabaptist notions of society impractical.
At issue is not the legitimacy of those who would debunk the "pious Mennonite" reading of the Reformation era, but rather to insist that those pursuing other interpretations likewise admit their own presuppositions (as Stayer to some extent attempts to do.) Subjectivity, despite Clasen's claims to the contrary, is always inherent in historical work and it seems that the degree of objectivity attainable is in direct proportion to the ability and willingness of the historian to face his own faith principles.
Recognizing the necessity for historians to square with their own commitments or agendas, even for Mennonites to admit the existence of a "pious Mennonite" school of Anabaptist studies, is not to understand the phenomenon. Since they served as the major ideologues of American Mennonite identity, most Mennonite historians described the past, defined the present, and proposed the future. But even as advocates of a normative Anabaptism, they were guided in their description of that 16th century movement by the very sociological and theological milieu in America to which the ideal was to speak. Hence, the context of the historian must be known to understand his writings. To describe this "pious Mennonite" interpretation in its environment is the task of my dissertation. It is entitled "History as Ideology: The Identity Struggle of an American Minority--the Mennonites" (University of Princeton).
-Rodney J. Sawatsky.
In Europe today only the German Mennonites have channels of scholarly publications in periodicals of their own. The Dutch had the Doopsgezinde Bijdragen which started in a modest from in the beginning of the 18th century and achieved its classic era in 1861-1919. It was however, discontinued at that time and revived only in a modified form in 1952 in Stemmen, which was discontinued in 1963. At present, there remains a general weekly publication with an occasional book review and the annual Doopsgezind Jaarboekje.
The German Mennonites have a scholarly journal Mennonitische Geschichtsblaetter, published annually since 1936, and now also have made their Mennonitisches Jahrbuch another channel of scholastic pursuit and communications. This is especially the case since 1971 when Johannes Harder, formerly a professor of sociology at the Wupperthal Educational Academy, and now pastor of the Frankfurt Mennonite Church, became the editor.
In addition to the summary of the events and highlights of the year and a presentation of the lists of congregations and organizations since 1971, this yearbook contains challenging informative and scholarly contributions, many of which deserve to get full attention by American readers. Some of the titles of the articles in the last Jahrbuch (1973 ) should arouse curiosity. Among those of special interest are "Against the Lack of Freedom in the Free Church" by Hans-Juergen Goertz (in translation) and "Visiting the Grosse Werder" (former Mennonite villages in present-day Poland) by Helmut Reimer, as well as another article on this subject by Rolf Fieguth in the 1971 Jahrbuch entitled "Mennonite Historic Awareness and Their Old West Prussian Home." The last two articles give a startling historical analysis of a chapter in Mennonite history of a minority in a national context not easily found elsewhere, including North America. The self analysis is honest, painful, and could be healing and corrective. It is a very critical survey showing how the Mennonites, as Dutch refugees, settled in the swamps of the Vistula River and became die Stillen im Lande. The joyous and sacrificial witness of the forefathers still found as an echo on the pages of the Martyrs Mirror disappeared in their gradual acculturation and adjustment to the German Drang nach dem Osten. As Dutch refugees, they gave up their language in exchange for the Low German and High German languages, but looked down on their Polish neighbors. The authors regret that the Mennonites failed to build bridges between the Germans and the Poles.
It is a hopeful sign that the German Mennonites are now sending their young people to the area of the former Heubuden Mennonite Church to work in a voluntary workcamp where the Germans under Hitler had a concentration camp.
Others who are critically reevaluating the Mennonite heritage and calling attention to it on the pages of their two periodicals are Peter J. Foth, J. H. Wiens, Heinold Fast, Gerhard Schellenberg, Gerhard Hein, Hans Adolf Hertzler, Abram Enns, Oskar Wedel, and others. (Copies of the Jahrbuch can be obtained through the Mennonite Library and Archives, North Newton, Kansas. For additional information see "Mennonite Historical Periodicals" in Mennonite Life, April, 1970, p. 89.)
