Book Synopsis
Only seven copies of Rapp’s original German language treatise remain, and researchers have mainly relied on an 1824 English translation that contains cultural and linguistic errors.

Author Silvia Rode seeks to aid scholars interested in American communalism, German immigration, United State religious history, and Indiana history by helping to reevaluate this important piece of regional religious history and make it more accessible to scholars and the public by tracing the genesis of Father Rapp’s Harmonist document and comparing a readable, standardized German transcription as well as an annotated, comparison of the 1824 English translation with a new modern translation.
