abstract
This thesis project is centered around the collection and editing of four eighteenth-century Moravian liturgical hymn services. In this context paper I describe Moravian worship practices in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries in America, and discuss how the liturgical hymn services fit into that worship cycle. This paper also describes the change in American Moravian worship that takes place throughout the nineteenth century, and brings to light numerous records from church diaries that illustrate why these changes are taking place. The final portion of this paper describes the sources used and the editorial decisions made in the collection of the four liturgical hymn services, which are provided as a supplement with this paper.
