The fractured society that survived the 1350’s Black Plague marked the beginning of the end of Medieval Europe. Changes which occurred to that society will resonate today. The instructor is not a student of history nor an accomplished artist. But, having been raised in the Moravian (pre-reformation) Church (in an Ohio community originally established as a mission to the “Delaware Indian nation”), his course will present a storyline that reads like a Cecile B deMille screenplay – complete with artist depictions. We will dissect and discuss a slice of history between 1400s – 1800s, beginning in Europe and reaching into the America’s, the West Indies, Africa, and more. Our study follows trade routes by Moravian missionaries to reach natives and slaves. As a “tourist”, the instructor began an “unplanned pilgrimage” to Germany and the Czech Republic tracing the historical and spiritual roots of the Moravian Church. Materials developed for this presentation may be used for an international art exhibit. See it and hear about it here, first! There will be an optional field trip to Chief Vann house, near Chatsworth. Students will provide their own transportation and a $6 entry fee.
