Bethania Moravian Church 1807

The town of Bethania represents 260 years of faith and community being brought together to pave the way for the rise of the Moravian Church throughout the USA. History will forever remember the impact that this small town had on the rest of the nation, and now anyone can have this reminder at home!                                                                                                 In the mid-1700's, missionaries from the region of Moravia migrated to the United States to form Protestant settlements across the country. Under the direction of Dr. Augustus Spangenberg, the newest Moravian settlement of Bethania expanded into a full-fledged town, complete with a fire department, a militia and an academy. Before that, the first major undertaking of the settlement was constructing Bethania Moravian Church in 1809. After standing for over two centuries and even surviving a large fire in 1942, Bethania Moravian Church has thrived and continues to serve as a symbol of faith-based determination.                                                                                                                                                                              Each crystal weighs approximately one pound and eight ounces, and measures 2.5” x 2.5” x 3.25” inches. Beveled edges around the Moravian "Bonnet" or "eyebrow" arch, seen at the entrances to Moravian churches and homes add, to the Moravian theme of this exquisite collection.
