246 pages
The most recent and thorough documentation of the beginning of the Brethren movement in 1708 in Schwarzenau, Germany. Especially noteworthy is Meier’s description of the way various religions movements influenced Alexander Mack, including Pietism and Anabaptism, as well as the little-known Philadelphian Movement. This important scholarly work on early Brethren history includes 2,364 endnotes citing valuable sources of information. Based upon his thorough study of archives and documents including ones unknown to Donald F. and Hedwig T. Durnbaugh at the time of there research in the 1950s, Meier has expanded knowledge about the early Brethren in an especially effective manner.
