Nothing is known of Reist s background or birthplace. He was probably from the Sumiswald region of Emmental in the Canton of Berne . There were numerous Anabaptist s in this area during the 17th century. Reist was a gifted preacher and had a great influence among his followers in Switzerland, Alsace and Southern Germany. He is noted for leading a group that opposed Jacob Amman . In July or August 1693, a meeting of all Swiss Brethren elders was called to explain their differing beliefs. Hans Reist did not attend the meeting in spite of multiple requests, but explained in writing why he rejected the views of Jacob Amman. No resolution to the differences was found, and the Swiss Brethren separated into the Amish who used hook and eye fasteners and the followers of Reist who used buttons . Reist succeeded in convincing a large portion of the region s Anabaptists of his views. They formed the basis of today s Swiss Mennonite Conference and numerous groups of Mennonites in North America. The date and place of Reist s death are unknown. Hans Reist left no theological writings and has been nearly forgotten, in spite of his significance in Mennonite history.

  1. Ernst Bettler

    nofootnotes date December 2008 Ernst Bettler is a fictional Switzerland Swiss graphic designer . He was invented by Christopher Wilson in a 2000 hoax article published in the second issue of Dot Dot Dot magazine Dot Dot Dot , a magazine of visual culture. According to the article, Bettler was asked in the 1950s to design advertisement poster s for Pf fferli Huber P H , a Swiss pharmaceutical manufacturer. The article states that Bettler knew of the company s involvement in Nazi concentration camp experiments and decided to accept the commission with the intention of damaging P H. The four posters he created, Wilson s article recounts, were exemplary works of International Typographic Style design, advertising P H drugs such as Contrazipan . However, according to the article, the posters featured abstract compositions that could be read as capital letters spelling out N A Z I when displayed in sequence. Wilson s article states that the public outcry that followed the public display of the posters ruined P H in a matter of weeks. Even though it was highly detailed and featured many photographs and illustrations, the article was a complete fabrication. Ernst Bettler, Pf fferli Huber and its drugs do not exist, and neither do the Swiss towns Sumisdorf and Burgwald that feature in the article their names are presumably based on the real Swiss towns of Sumiswald and Burgdorf, Switzerland Burgdorf . Nonetheless, the story was well received in graphic design circles. Among others, the September October 2001 Graphic Anarchy issue of Adbusters magazine hailed Bettler s work as one of the greatest design interventions on record , and the 2002 graphic design textbook Problem Solved by Michael Johnson writer Michael Johnson covers Bettler as one of the founding fathers of the culture jamming form of protest . Wilson s article was first revealed to be false in a 2002 entry in the blog Lines and Splines by Andy Crewdson . The Bettler hoax and its reception was subsequently covered ...   more details
