By late summer, all three leaders had moved on, although Denck and Hut would return: Denck went to Strasbourg for a time, Hut began his missionary journeys and Hubmaier continued on to Nikolsburg.We know little about the early Anabaptist community in Augsburg, but early in 1527 Hans Hut returned and baptized a large group of important local leaders: the patrician Eitelhans Langenmantel, the former clergymen Jakob Dachser and Sigmund Salminger, the weavers Gall Fischer and Peter Scheppach, and many others. February 1527) the Swiss Anabaptist leader and refugee Jakob Gross arrived in the city, and began baptizing as well.Rather than evidence suggesting contrary "Anabaptisms" colliding at this point in Augsburg, the records show that Hut established a rudimentary church organization among the Augsburg Anabaptists that featured a common chest for poor relief, and that integrated Jakob Gross into the leadership structure: Sigmund Salminger was chosen "first minister" by lot, with Jakob Gross and Jakob Dachser as his assistants.This is unavoidable, for the years 1526-1530 witnessed an intense interaction between baptizers in the empire and especially in Moravian territories.This interaction eventually helped define Swiss Anabaptists as "Swiss Brethren," over against other streams of baptizers, and clarified the identity of those other baptizers as well.
In May of 1527, Hubmaier would oppose Hut from a Swiss perspective; in August of that same year, in Augsburg, Hut encountered opposition from within the South German movement itself.
