On this date, May 26, 1700, Count Nicholas von Zinzendorf was born. In July 1737 Zinzendorf found documents of the Unitas Fratrum (Unity of the Brethren) of the fifteenth-century Hussite movement in Bohemia and Moravia. At that time, he had religious refugees at his place in Herrnhut, and he shared the documents with them. Together they agreed to restore the older church with Zinzendorf and would later become known as the Moravian Church.
