Abstract

The subject of this essay, Harmonisches Gesangbuch, 1827 was the hymnal of the Harmony Society, a Christian community of German origins in America in the early nineteenth century. This society is defined neither as an American denomination nor as a sect, but as a religious communal society.

This essay will first present a brief overview of the history and theology of this society, followed by an analysis of its hymn book.
