The Anabaptists recognized and practised only the baptism of adults, advocated a strict separation of church and state, and renounced all forms of violence.
The Anabaptists were persecuted, and many fled to Germany, the Netherlands or to America. Others fled to the heights of the Jura, which then belonged to the diocese of Basel. There they made their living mainly through agriculture.
Anabaptists are today called Mennonites. The Anabaptist path follows the way they took when they fled to the Jura. The path leads to secret meeting points, inscriptions and the Anabaptist archive of documents, books and objects.
