Historic Moravian Bethlehem (Thursday Morning, Sept. 6, 2018)

Historic Moravian Bethlehem is located in the heart of the City of Bethlehem. It was here in 1741 the Moravians located their crafts, trades and industries. The Moravians in Bethlehem lived in a communal society organized into groups, called choirs, and segregated by age, gender and marital status. Moravians built large choir houses, superb examples of German Colonial style architecture in America. In addition to living together, Moravians worked together under the General Economy, a system where everyone works and provides for the good of the community and, in return, receives care from birth to death.

Moravian buildings reflect the ingenuity, creativity and universality of Moravian thinking and philosophy. The Moravians believed that all people, both men and women, should receive the same education; that all people should receive healthcare; that women should have equal rights with men in the community; and that all people should work together for the good of the community without prejudice regarding race, gender or ethnicity.
