From Greenland, over South Africa up to Australia the Moravian Church (Brethren’s Congregation from Herrnhut) is valued for its missionary work. Their accomplishments among the the Sorbs are little known however. The encounter with the Moravian Church did not just change the lives of many hundreds Sorbs from Upper and Lower Lusatia, but had an enormous effect upon the rural communities, the sorbian-wendish education environment as well as the literature.
