History of the Moravian Church

Author: Hutton, J. E.

The Moravian Church, founded by Jan Hus (or John Huss), was one of the first Protestant churches, perhaps even older than any Lutheran church. Hutton tells the story of the Moravian Church, dividing it into four sections. He begins with the life and martyrdom of Jan Hus, then documents the 18th century revival under Nikolaus von Zinzendorf, the famed Pietist and social reformer. Following the revival, the Moravians began to spread their faith throughout the world, and by the turn of the 20th century, they had firm establishments throughout Europe and North America. Today, the Moravian Church has nearly one million members, and it influences millions more.
