Moravian Church

This page is about the Moravian Church globally. For information about the church in a particular geographic area, use the links at Organisation below. The Moravian Church (Latin: Unitas Fratrum, meaning “Unity of the Brethren”) is a Protestant denomination. This church’s nickname comes from the original exiles who came to Saxony in 1722 from Moravia to escape persecution, but its religious heritage began in 1457 in Kunvald, Bohemia, an autonomous kingdom within the Holy Roman Empire.
