1953, as Society of Brothers -- Sociedad de Hermanos. Name changed, 1974, to Hutterian Society of Brothers. Present name adopted 1984. Roots of the Bruderhof can be found in Anabaptism and the Radical Reformation of the early 1500s, when thousands left the institutional churches to live a life of sharing and non-violence in Christian communities called Bruderhofs. The current Communities derive from a rural settlement set up in 1920 in the spirit of these original Bruderhofs by German writer/theologian Eberhard Arnold, his wife Emmy and a circle of fellow seekers; these were expelled from Germany by the Nazis in 1937, moved to UK, to Paraguay and later to USA.
Live a life of Christian discipleship in Community, with awareness of the sacredness of every human life; promote pacifism and non-violence; lead a full life in collective community.
