Brothers in Bondage: The Moravians Struggle with the Institution of Slavery


Author(s):
Abstract:
The German religious immigrants known as the Moravians, settled in North Carolina in and around what is now the city of Winston-Salem. Although some groups struggled with the institution of slavery, the Moravians took enslaved Africans and baptized them into the church, allowing them to work, live, and worship together in close quarters.
