Brethren

Brethren is a name adopted by several Protestant Christian bodies which do not necessarily share historical roots. As classified in The Pilgrim Church by EH Broadbent, the earliest primitive churches and the Paulician Brethren, the Bogomil Brethren, the Anabaptist and the Moravian Brethren were part of the historical Brethren Movement.

Famous quotes containing the word brethren:

    A bargain is in its very essence a hostile transaction ... do not all men try to abate the price of all they buy? I contend that a bargain even between brethren is a declaration of war.
    George Gordon Noel Byron (1788–1824)

    And call ye this to utter what is just,
    You that of justice hold the sov’reign throne?
    And call ye this to yield, O sons of dust,
    To wronged brethren ev’ry man his own?
    —Bible: Hebrew Psalm LVIII (Paraphrased by The Countess of Pembroke)

    The denial of our duty to act in this case is a denial of our right to act; and if we have no right to act, then may we well be termed “the white slaves of the North,” for like our brethren in bonds, we must seal our lips in silence and despair.
    Angelina Grimké (1805–1879)
