Presentation by students from Lehigh University at the Moravian Archives

During the summer of 2015 a group of five Lehigh University students worked with a variety of German-language primary sources from the former Moravian community of “Christiansbrunn” (or Christian’s Spring, southwest of Nazareth) as part of a summer 2015 Mountaintop project at Lehigh University.

Under the mentorship of Archives’ board member and Lehigh University Chair of English, Dr. Scott Gordon, the students formed a team to analyze a variety of primary source documents, including maps, membership catalogs, memoirs, surveys, and letters.

The students devised a digital platform to present their findings about the individuals who lived at Christiansbrunn and the many activities in which they engaged.

At this event the students will present the results of their work to the public for the first time.
