Volume 7, Issue 1 (2019) Special issue: The Beachy Amish-Mennonite Churches

The Amish division in 1865 birthed two clusters of denominations in the Amish tradition, the Amish-Mennonites and the Old Orders. The Amish-Mennonites are generally more lenient on matters of technology, dress, and evangelical theology. The Beachy type of Amish-Mennonite emerged gradually from 1910 to 1960. Today, the Beachy Amish-Mennonite Church is the largest denomination of Amish-Mennonites. Several groups have divided off of the Beachys, adding denominational variation to the Beachy movement. This special issue focuses on the Beachy Amish-Mennonites, with special attention on language, social change, religious issues, and history.
