Ninety-nine years ago, a band of
Christian Indians inhabiting the see-
tion of conjitry where w are assem
bled this evening, took its way to the
Wig., in order
,to settle-in one 'of the
valleys of what is now the State of
Ohio. ,They Wore led by' Moravian
MiSsionari6s who had utplored the
Susquehanna up to Bradford county
preaching the glorionszospel of, the
blessed God, and making the wilder
nesii of Wyabasing to lalossom as the
rose. To-night, for the first time in
the century that has nearly passed
since . that exodus,- the hymns and
prayers of the church of Brethren
have again been heard . in this region,
filling this sanctuary of a sister de
nomination Of christians.
We come to you,cmy friends, as our
forefathers in the fifteenth century
came to the Waldenses, and in ,the
sixteenth to Bohn Calvin, rejoicing in
"one. Lord,' one faith, one baptism,
in one God and Father of all, who is
above all, and through all, and in all."
We come to take cotinstk with you
respecting the Savicrar's &use and
the Saviour's kingdom. We come
that you and we may be stirred np
anew to promote that cause and
fipread that kingdom. Now nothing
will save to make us faithful in- dis

Hence I will proceed to give you a
brief account of the history, polity
and. doctrines of. the church which
we represent. I will do this, first,
because I have been particularly re
quested by your esteemed pastor to
elucidate this subject; and second,
because it involves much which will
clearly show that Christ Himself gov

that~He can accomplish' great results
through the most insufficient instru

His grace and truth.
In the heart of Europe there are
two small countries, 'Bohemia and
Moravia, the one a kingdom, the oth
er a margraviato of the Austrian em
pire. ;They are inhabited by the
Czekhs, who form a part of the great
Slavonic race which burst into 'En.
rope from the East, and which no*
inhabits nearly onehalf of that con
tinent. The Czekits were converted
to christianity in the ninth century,
through the labors of Clyrill and Me
thodius, the illustrious apostles of the
Slavonia's. They came frOm the
Greek church, translated the Bible
into the vernacular, and introduced
the Slavic liturgy. Hence, although:
Bohemia and Moravia soon fell un
der the sway of the Popes of Rome,
there grew up in these two countries
a National Church, which from the
earliest times, more or lees, protested,
in various ways, against the nsuipa
tions of the Hierarchy. Such protests
became very earnest in the coarse of
the fourkeuth century.. Preachers
like Conrad Waldhauser and John
Milic, who for authority in refoirrning
the masses and power, in swaying
open air congregations that number
ed thousands of hearers, may be put
by the side of George Whitefield and
John Wesley, and writers like Mat
thias of ham, gave expremien to
truths which deeply excited the re
ligions-, feelings of the people, and
=the way for the Bohemian
ion. John Hose was the
distinguished leader.. It was his im
pose to convert his countrymen and
purify the church, not with carnal
weapons, but with the Word of God,
which is " the sword of the Spirit."
When, however, the council of Con
stance broke the\ royalpledge of safe-'
.ty which be had received, and had
him "burnedalive as an " arch-here
tic," on the 6th of July, 1415, his fol
lowers flew to arms, and inaugurated
the Hussite war, which raged with
fray for fourteen years.,. The Huss
ites were invariably . snoeessfal e de
feating immense armies of the Im
perialists, driving_before them ' with
their iron -pointena il s, the flo wer of
the chivalry of Europe; and spread- ;
ing the terror of their name -far be
yond the confines of their own coun

themselves. The Taboritee formed

of Tabontee, were now constituted

kinds and the use of the vernacular

Yom the midst of this COMMA-
neon those men of God came forth
who formed the"liforavion churCh.
The/ were true followers . of John
Mum, men that had taken no part in
the war; men that tonged - to work
out their own personal, salvation ►nd
to reform the church; men that -re.
cognized thegrowing degenegacy of
the National Establiiainaent, whicin in
most of its doctrines, its
and isspoxially its We, was fast falling
to a level with the Roman Catholics.
At the head,of the Bohemian church
stood Min Rokrum e an illustrious
preacher, inveigling agist the cor
ruptness of the times. Around him
those awakened souls gathered and
.bosought him t 9 begi4a-reformation,
promising to support him whatever
might be the emsequences. But he
refe.socl, afraid of the danget to which
he would expose himself. Then they
began to seek some quiet retreat where
they might worship God in peace,
carry out the principles of Huse, and
encourage one another in the Lord.
. Now it so lhappened that - . George
Podiebrad, the 'Regent of Bohemia,
owned an estate called Litiz, about
ono hundred miles east of Preps,
on the•confines of Siberia. It had
been devastated in the course of the
Hussite wax, vtlis sparsely inhabited,
and brought him but a small revenue.
The little band of inquirers begged
Itokyzan to induce the Regent to al
low theurto settle there. ltokyzan,
who was anxious to get rid of thein,
eagerly consented The Regent,
thinkiug such, a settlement would de
vt.lop the estate antl' increase his in

that they were instruments in. God's
hands forleffeetingillis divinepur
pose, an that through, their selfish
motives movement would bo inrin
gurated hich cveuld extend to all
the ends f the earth, and continue
thromgh t many generations.
The assbciates left Prague and built
themselves cottages at Knnwalde, one
of thevillages of the estate. In that
village, in the midst of dense forests,
and in the j ahadow of the giant mcmn
tains, before ever the pilgrim fathers
planted the standard of liberty in our
land, before ever the Anglican Refor
mation freed the Church of England
from the fetters of the Papacy, before
ever Luther kindled the torch ot•
truth at the fire which burns on God's
own . altar, when, with the lexception l
of the Waldenses, all Europa lay in
the darkness of medieval superstition i
and the bonds of Romish idolatry,
-and America was still undiscovered,
414 years ago, in 1457, the church of
the United Brethren was formed.
"Brethren " was the name which its
members adopted, and which has re
maimed to the present day. i •
The principles which this church
enunciated were, in' brief, the follow
ing three'- The Bible is the only
of Christian doctrine; public
worship is to be conducted and a dis
cipline to be carried out in accord
ance with what ,the Scriptures teach
and on the model of the Apostolical
church; the Lord's Supper is to be
received in faith, to be defined in the
language of Scripture, and every hu
man exp . lanition of that language is
to be rejecka• . J
Many awakened persons, from dif
ferent parts of RoheTnis, and Mora
via, began to flock\to Litiz, so that
the Brethren began\to increase rap
idly. During the first tea 'years of
their history, they consgtuted merely
an Association within the National
Church, from which they had not yet
formally separated. Some of its con
verted priests joined their society and
ministered to them in holy things.,
But when this church began s cruel!
parseention, which added not` a few,
to the noble army of martyrs, and'
when the Brethren found it would be
impossible to obtain a linfficioney ot
Calixtine priests, they discussed thel
propriety of severing the last tie whj.ch
united them with the Establishment,
and of instituting a ministrf,of their
own. Thili question. was made one
of special prayer for several years;
and at last in 1464, was decided in
the aff'irmati've by the use of the lot,
in imitation' of the Apostles. Bat
even now they allowed 'three years
more to pass without carrying out
this decision; for they deemed the
institution 'of an independent minis
try to be So momentous a. measure
that it must be' consummated with
the utmost tare and caution. At last
in 1467, a synod numbering seventy
members met at Shots, - a village on
a neighboring estate, in the house of
a peasant named Dachek. The meet
ing was opened with fasting and
f rir and the reading of the Scrip
ar Then the deliberations began,
which resulted in a plan which left
the issue absolutely in, the hands of
the Lord.. ' Nine nien bf high repute
for piety were first tileeted by ballot.
Next twelve. paper lots were rolled
together and put into a vase, nine of
them being blank, and three inscrib
ed with 44, the Bohemian word for
he i.i. Thereupon a fervent prayer
was offered up beseeching God to de
signate of the nine nominees either
one, or two, or three, as His minis
ters; but if thisnhould not be the
time which He had ordained-for such
a censuramation, to cause all the nine
to receive blanks. In this CllBO the
Brethren would have deferrel,further
action to some I future period. Sev
eral members of the synod having
been appointed to conduct the pro
ce4xlings, took their places around a
table, before which stoat the nomi
nees, the rest of the assembly sitting
is a semi-circle behind them, in sor
emn and prayerful oilmen A lad
named Procop was called in, and drew
nine rolls, singly, out of the vue, giv
ing one to each of the nominees, who
advanced to the table and exhibited
their lots. It appeared that, ail the
three iucriled with lest had been
drawn. The first. had been given - to
Mstthisl of Burnside, the second to
Thomas of Preknie, and the third to
Elise of Chrenovio. The whole se-
seanbly instantly lON to its feet, and
every member luisterußd to acknow
ledge these three men es the future
ministers of the church, by pledging
to them the right land of fellowship,
A thanksgiving hymn, composed for
the mum, was joyfully song, after
which followed the Lord's Supper.
The synod neat proceeded to con
eider the ordination of the new mire-
isters. - Who was to perform. this and
in what wisp - After' earnest and
prayerful debberation the following
conOtsions were readied: nut, that
-in the time of the Apostles then had
existed no distinction between a bish-
op and a priest, and that priests or
presbyters ordairmd men to the

candidates ordained by the priests
present at the 'synod; thhd, that at
a very early age, however, before the
death of St. John, the office of & blab-
op had grown to be distinct from that
of a priest, and.the right of ordain
ing had been committed exchutively
to bishops; fourth, that thistoga"-
tion, although not of Scriptural au
thority; was a wise <and a good one,
and - ought to be observed, and that
the unmstry of the Brethren ought
to bear such , a character as 'would
compel the Roman Catholics and the
Bohemian church to acknowledge its
validity; fifth, that therefore. the
Brethren ought to remain true both
to the usage of the - Aposballeal church
and to that following the days of the
Apostles and so fulfill . all righteous
nes& Accordingly the candidates
were ordained on the spot by the
prieesta•,there present, with prayer and
the laying on of hands; after which

were sent to a colony of Waldenses,
on the confines of Austria, to secure
The history of these Waltlouses was
peculiar. They were isulated from
their brethren . in France and Italy,
but on intimate terms with Rokyzan
and other leaders (A the Bohemian
church. Rokyzan was anxious to at
tach them to his party. Hence, their
ministers being ,all dead, he induced
Bishop Philibert, a delegate of the
Council of Basle, to ordain . two of
their number, Frederick - Nem= and
John \Vlach, as:priests at Prague, on
the 14th of September, 1433. In the
following year, 1434. when the Tibctr
ites had' been defeated by . the Calix
tines, when the utmost confusion pre
vailed throughout Bohemia• in church
and state; when an open feud- had
broken out between the Council at
Basle and the Pope; when, however,
the former did everything in its pow
er to conciliate the Bohemians,—

instance of, and in order to gratify
Rokyzan and his coadjutors, limy

of the Roman Catholic church. Con

Their two surviving bishops, of
whom the senior was namedAtephen
willingly conferred it upon ‘Michael
Bradaciusand his two companion,.
Having returned to Bohemia, anoth
er synod was called, at which they
first rcsrdained Matthias, Thomas
and Elias aapriests, and then conse
crated Elias as bishop. Thereupon
the four bishops with whom were as
sodded several priests, were coisti•
fated a council for the governinent
of the church. This council, how
ever, was subordinate to the synod.
The little society of Brethren,formd
ed in 1457, on the barony of Litiz,
was thus developed into a regular
church, soon known as the Unitas
Pratrum (Unity of the Brethren), with
a valid ministry of its own. It in
creased rapidly, organizing parishes
in-many parts of Bohemia and Mora
via. Bat the adversary, " the accu
ser of the brethren," was not idle.
Exerting that anti-christian power of
which St. John said in his early day,
" and even now it is already in the
world," he made war-with the Saints.
Two more persecutions broke out,
which raged against—the Waldenses
also. The Brethren "had trial of
cruel moekings and scourging, rat,
moreover ..of bonds and imprison
ment" " They wandered in deserts
and in mountains, and in dens and
caves of the earth." They held their ,
public services and their synods at ,
night, in, dense solitudes, around fires, '
under, the starry canopy of heiven.l
They walked,to such gathering places i
in single files, through deep snows,
and. the last man dragging tree
branch to obliterate their footstepti.
They were tortured on the rack and
burned at the stake. Yet the more
Satan raged the more they prospered.
The blood of the mart-ss Was the'
seed of the church: The colony of
Waldenses and their episcopate in
deed became extinct, Bishop Stephen
Isuffering martyrdom at . Vienna; but
the Brethren remained; and when
Martin Luther nailed his these to
the door of the Wittenberg Cathe
dral, on the 31st . , of. October, 1517,
there existed a church of Reformers
before the Reformation, in Bohemia
and Moravia, numbering at least 200,-
000' members; among 'whom were
some of the noblest %Milks of the
realm, counting over 400 parishes,
using a hymn book and \ a catechisM
of its own, proclaiming its doctrines
lin various Confessions Of Faith, em
ploying - two printing-presses, arra'
scatterir,ig the Bible and other reli
gions books far and wide.
• The Brethren made common cause
with the Reformers. They sent depu
ties to those of 'Wittenberg and to
those of Strassburg ; they co
ed with Luther, Melanetho=';'
ars of the one school, and with Cal=
i vin, Capito and Bucer of the other.
And while they were induced by such
intercourse to drop some doctrinal
points' which ,savored of scholastic
theology, and to define essential deo
trines more clearly., they became, at.
the same time, the Lord's instru
ments in op3nox to the minds of
these Mat:loner men the imPortaties
of a seripthral discipline. Calvin, in
partienhir, was nepreaned .with this
idea, and introduced some of the prin
ciples at Geneva which he had learn
ed from the Brethren. Time will not
permit mo to ptusnethis part of their
history an 7 further, although it is full
of interealang' details.
The &wawa War, in which Bo
hernia became involved, keeled on
the focirth persecution of the Unitas
Fratrum in that country,in 1537. The
Illointian Diet, on the contrary, in
which there were influential members
'of the church, refused to sanction auk
decree against the Brethren. In 804

and at last all team wing onthe roy

gelical religion. When their work
was done, Bohemia and 31ofavia lay
chained at the feet of the Hierarchy;
while more than 30,000 of their Pro

these were 'thousands of the Breth-
ren ; those that minified in _their
homes wore forced under tlie yoke of
Rome. Their pastors were banished
or slain ; their churches taken from
them ; and their ecclesiastical organ

forever destroyed. But these enemies

this came to an end in 1648, Bohe

its tone and tendency: The ancient

This was .the beginning of a new
epoch in the fasten of the :Unitas

vrated different fro that of former
days and yet not less to the glory of
God. Count Tun r orf, Who had'
identified himself I. the cause of
the. Brethren, resigning his pesition
at the Saxon court, and devoting his
property to their interests, -and who
had, su bsequently, been consecrated
as one of'their bishops, naturally
came their leader, and induced thorn
to carry ant his, favorite idea, which
he had borrowed from Philip Spener,
of " little churches within the
church." Hence, wherever they
came, on the continent of Europe, in
Great Britain, and in America,— for
they soon spread to the two Countries
last named = exclusive settlements
were fonndectin which .religion not
controlled spiritual, but social
and industrial interests, and from
which the vices and follies of the
world were banished. In an& settle
ments none but members of the
church could hold. real - estate.. No
community of goods, liowner, exist
-ed among them, as is often supposed.
Such an arrangement was wet m
treduced. Every member retained
the tudiniited control of his own pro
perty. The neleessary, result of this
policy was to keep the church small ;•

In the v nature of the tees

influences which Were felt "far and
wide. The Whin,' children of the
old Milton ,never intended
to mend their &vein religions idle

601 biluthitartts, the first Min'kmarie'
of the Beneived Clmrcli, Leonard
Debar and David Iritichipimii, went
out to convert the Imre slaves of
the West •Indies,. resolved to sell
themselves Into aertitude if they
should find no other tycy of reaching
this • delpised and Maken people.
This Was the 'beginning of a work
which God wonderfully blessed, and
which has made the Moravians, by
common consent, the standard bear
ers in those armies of the Lord that
are Corerering the heathen world for
Jesus. For • they - have 'carried the
banner of the cross to eight. islands'
of the., West" Indies, to,, Greenland
and Labrador; to Denmark andf3iiri

cgypt;to Guinea on the 'Neaten

minks* about 1 2,335 missionaries in

out by the church sk home, while a
large force of native aesiehirits has
been employed besides.
