Shortly after our founding in 1857, we published the first issue of the Transactions of the Moravian Historical Society. In 2006, we collaborated with our affiliate the Moravian Archives to expand the Transactions into the biannual Journal of Moravian History, a scholarly publication featuring articles, book reviews, and translations of original source material related to Moravian history. The Journal is now published in cooperation with the Pennsylvania State University Press and is recognized as the leading scholarly periodical on Moravian history in English.

Our biannual newsletter, Abundant Heritage shares information about activities, events, and programs at our organization. We also seek to share what is going on in Moravian communities throughout the world. To receive your paper copy of the newsletter, become a member today!
