Zwingli, Volume II: My Brethren Ancestors Were Reformed, Anabaptists, Moravian & Waldensian
The stories of numerous church leaders and their families, from various Protestant denominations, are presented with surprising new detail as to how they relate to the Swiss Reformer Huldrych Zwingli. Revealed is the Waldensian connection between the ancestral lines of the author's four grandparents (Sheaffer, Nolt, Fryberger and Fox), members of the Church of the Brethren in eastern Pennsylvania, with very unique European origins found among the Reformed Church, the Anabaptists, both Amish and Mennonite, and the Moravians. Their lines are documented from Zurich, Switzerland, in the 1500s to the present day. Described by Amos B. Hoover as the “purebreads,” DNA analysis by Darvin L. Martin identifies their deep ancestry, prior to where their stories merge in Switzerland in the company of Zwingli and his student Conrad Grebel. (384pp. color illus. index. Masthof Press, 2019.)
