Self, Community, World: Liberal Arts and Moravian Education
Friday, April 21 and Saturday, April 22, 2006
at Moravian College, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania
This conference, sponsored by the Moravian College and co-sponsored by the Moravian Archives, takes a look at the long educational tradition of the Moravian community. It explores the thoughts and practices of the Moravians and their meaning for the liberal arts.
We invite all who are interested in Moravian history, Moravian educational tradition, and rethinking liberal arts education.
Without neglecting the master thinkers of the Moravians, Jan Hus, Johann Amos Comenius, Nikolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf, and Friedrich Daniel Schleiermacher, the conference pays special attention to such practices as autobiography and intentional communities that the Moravians developed in the eighteenth century.
