Biographical Note:

A Moravian church congregation from North Carolina first settled the town of Hope, Indiana in Bartholomew County in 1830. According to one historian, “The story of Hope’s inception and growth is almost inseparably connected with that of the Moravian church.” The Moravian church, as it remains today, was connected to the Protestant Episcopal reform movement began by Jan Hus of Prague in the late fourteenth century. Moravia was a province near Bohemia, the capital of which was Prague; later Moravia and Bohemia were subsumed into what is now the Czech Republic. The Moravian church in America began with Germanic immigrants in the early eighteenth century.
