The Life of Nicholas Lewis Count Zinzendorf


Samuel Holdsworth 1838

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


The Life of Nicholas Lewis Count Zinzendorf gives a detailed account of the life and work of this important Moravian Church bishop. In 1722, Zinzendorf opened a large portion of his estate to a number of families suffering from religious persecution. There they built a small village and adopted Christian communal living principles in line with Moravian Church teachings. This community, rooted in many different denominational backgrounds, emphasized a single code of Christian behavior over specific doctrines or beliefs. The community was a success, and future Moravian communities would model themselves on it—the modern mission movement, in fact, is thought to have originated from this community. This volume by August Spangenberg covers the extraordinary life of a man who led an extraordinary movement.
