Moravians, the United Brethren or Unitas Fratrum, said to have been founded by John Huss. They yyere expelled from Moravia and Bohemia in 1627, and in 1722 a few members settled at Herrnhut, in Saxony, whence the sect spread over Germany, Britain, and America. They accept the Bible as their only authority, and hold that human nature is thoroughly depraved. They are episcopalian, and use a liturgy. They are most noted for their missionary work and for their influence upon Methodism.
