This 1990 movie is the true story of spiritual martyrs Michael and Margretha Sattler who were put to death by the Catholic Church in 1527 because of their beliefs.     It is also the story of a deep love between two people who shared the same beliefs, and who had the inner courage to follow those beliefs knowing they could die for them.   Michael and Margaretha Sattler were Anabaptists who lived in the time of the Protestant Reformation. They were considered heretics by the Catholic church and outlaws by the Protestants. Even though they had to preach their message in caves and barns to avoid detection, they managed to thrive.     Please enjoy your visit as you discover the movie, the characters and the history.
