The vine and the branches

The vine and the branches

The genealogy of the Moravian Church is here depicted by Johannes Swertner, minister of the Moravian community at Fairfield, near Manchester. In the eighteenth century this small and persecuted minority found refuge in Saxony, spreading thence in waves of ecumenical and missionary outreach. John and Charles Wesley were not least among those affected. This document forms part of the Bristol Moravian Church Archive deposited in the University Library.
