MONOGRAPH # 7
“THE ORIGINS OF THE SCHWARZENAU BRETHREN”
BY MARCUS MEIER
$40 PLUS $ 5 p&h
Not since the pioneering work of Donald and Hedda Durnbaugh in the 1950s has so much primary source material pertaining to the early Brethren in and around Schwarzenau been discovered.
Meier compiles a vast list of books and pamphlets in print near the beginning of the 18th century that were likely read by leaders of the Radical Pietist movement as well as Anabaptist leaders.
Meier presents well-documented stories showing how pietism and Anabaptism influenced Brethren theology and practices.
