Balthasar Hubmaier was an Anabaptist theologian who earned a theological doctorate at the University of Ingolstadt with John Eck and served as an early colleague of Huldrych Zwingli. He opposed Martin Luther's doctrine of the bondage of the human will. He argued instead that human beings have three wills that must be distinguished in order to stipulate how sinners are both bound and free. It was important for Hubmaier to affirm a certain freedom of the will. He rejected infant baptism and defended a believer's baptism that rested on the possibility of a free response to the gospel. He was captured by the Austrians and burned at the stake as a heretic.
