The files of the Unity of the Brethren are a testimony to a religious contestation preceding Lutheran reforms, a pacifist faction of the Hussite movement, who have chosen to live in communities applying the principles of the Gospel, in social equity, and considerably influenced Protestantism and Modernity. They also testifie to exceptional tolerance in Poland of the time, where the Brethren have emigrated to protect their freedom of religion and find shelter, material foundations for a dignified living, and the right to proclaim their religious and political views. The collection also reflects and showcases activity of persons, who had immense influence on European culture and education systems.
