Social Life of the Early Moravians in North Carolina

Record #:
Moravian director Count Zinzendorf envisioned a colony \"on a large tract of land on which the Moravians might live undisturbed, having the liberty of excluding all strangers from their settlements.\" This idea of a colony was distinct from other Piedmont settlers like the Scotch-Irish and Germans whom chose to settle on independent and isolated farms. From this colony a number of distinct social and religious behaviors evolved and are reviewed in this article.
