Many students have been impressed with the restitutionist character of the Radical Reformation and have observed certain similarities between that movement and the Restoration movement in America. The primary problem and purposes of this study are therefore twofold: (1) Were the two movements really similar, and if so, to what extent? (2) If both groups started with essentially the same presuppositions regarding the Scriptures, the church that was to be restored, and the method of restitution, how should one account for any differences that existed in practice?
