History of the Bohemian and Moravian Brethren


Religious Tract Society 1848

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


Credited with starting the modern mission movement and inspiring the events of the Reformation in the sixteenth century, the Moravian Church formed after leader John Huss (Jan Hus) was burned at the stake for promoting church reform. Huss championed such ideas as justification by grace through faith alone, full communion for laypeople, and adoption of the liturgy to the common language of the people. After his death, his followers fought and died to protect those ideas in what came to be known as the Hussite Wars.

In this volume on Moravian Church history, Ami Bost champions the argument that, like those of the Waldensian Church, the Moravian Church’s roots can be directly traced back to the primitive church.
