The Bursfelde Congregation, also called Bursfelde Union, was a union of predominantly west and central German Benedictine monasteries, both of men and women, working for the reform of Benedictine practice. It was named after Bursfelde Abbey.
Famous quotes containing the word congregation:
“Passing through here in 1795, Bishop Asbury commented, The country improves in cultivation, wickedness, mills, and stills. Five years later, he held a meeting in the neighborhood and remarked that he thought most of the congregation had come to look at his wig.”
