Archives Project 2019

»The Moravian Daily Texts need space«


What will be done?
The Unity Archives preserves the most complete collection of Moravian Daily Texts. This includes over 160 different editions in various languages. Ever since Zinzendorf announced the first Daily Text to the Herrnhut congregation on May 3, 1728, and the first printed Moravian Daily Texts were published for the 1731 calendar year, the Daily Texts remain in print today. This ever-growing collection in the Unity Archives requires more space. As a result, the neighboring library collection of the Theological Seminary must be accommodated elsewhere in the vaults.

Why do we need donations? 

Before the relocation can take place, the moveable shelves must be equipped with about 500 special shelf cross bars, for which we need a total of 5,100 euros. We would like to ask you for your support of the project through a donation. Help us preserve the Moravian Daily Texts in proper storage conditions! Of course, you will receive a receipt from us for your donation if you provide us with your postal address.
