(p.238) 11 Herrnhut
German and Scandinavian Protestantism 1700-1918

Nicholas Hope

Oxford University Press

Looks at Herrnhut, ‘the Lord's keeping’, count Zinzendorf's first settlement (in English, ‘Moravians’), as a cheerful Protestant religion of the heart. It gave ordinary people in the town and the country a sense of dignity and purpose in life. Much was about etiquette and experiment. After the 1750 Moravian mission, using native languages was very successful in Scandinavia and in Estonia and Livonia, in defining ethnic identity.

Keywords:   ethnic identity, etiquette, experiment, Herrnhut, mission, Moravians, native language, Zinzendorf
