I will be away at a conference next week in Germany. It is being held in honor of the 550th anniversary of the founding of the Unity of the Brethren (the Moravian Church). That’s 60 years before Luther’s 95 Theses by the way. The Unity was the first “free church” to break away from Rome, having established an independent episcopacy in 1467. It was also the first church to reject the idea of a “state church”, and to top it all off, the Brethren were pacifists. My paper is on the theology of the Brethren and how this may have impacted the community led by Zinzendorf.
