The Chronicle of the Hutterian Brethren, Volume 1

Front Cover
Plough Publishing House, 1987 - Religion - 887 pages
Available for the first time ever in English translation, The Chronicle is a fascinating primary account of how Anabaptism began. Containing the only extant account of the first adult baptism in Reformation times, The Chronicle documents Hutterite life in Austria and Moravia from 1528 to 1665 and provides a wealth of economic, social, and cultural detail from the standard point of an oppressed and severely persecuted minority.

As a record of refusal to break under ostracism, torture, and death, this is an unparalleled testimony to the faithfulness and tenacity that has held the Hutterians together through 450 years of communal living.

Includes numerous annotations, notes, and secondary references, maps, illustrations, bibliography, and index.

Tony Campolo, Eastern College

Let it never be said that Christianity which requires faithfulness to the Sermon on the Mount has never been tried. This material will prove that it has, and that it works. A carefully documented record of unusual Christian community.
