Bohemian Brethren

Bohemian Brethren were composed of remnants of the Taborites or extreme sect of the Hussites. These had formed themselves into an organised body, called the United Brethren, in 1455, and at one time numbered some 200 communities in Bohemia. They were broken up by the Thirty Years' war, when the Protestants were expelled from that country, but afterwards met in secret, and in 1722 were permitted by Count Zinzendorf to settle on his land in Saxony. From this time they were called Moravians or Herrnhuters.
