They are like a radical and puritan group of Anabaptists. The Amish are a Protestant ethnoreligious community that is united primarily by their religion and traditions.
There are more than 42 subgroups of Amish communities, which are divided into the old order and new order, which are very different from each other despite having the same origin. However, some retain the same lifestyle and similar doctrines.
At present, the Amish communities comprise about 500 settlements. They are located mostly in Canada and the United States, although there are also some communities in Central and South America.
Origin of the Amish communities
In Switzerland, in 1525, a movement called Anabaptist emerged. In which adult baptism was practiced. Conrad Grebel and George Blaurock began this movement by baptizing each other and then other followers. The Anabaptists as a movement were part of the well-known radical reform. Which was later named as the Swiss brothers.
In 1693 Jakob Ammann one of the main leaders of the Swiss brothers of Alsace. He demanded from the other leaders of the congregation that the discipline of his church be stricter. Not getting acceptance, he decided to separate from them to later create his community with his followers, who would be called the Amish.
For their part, the progressives began their process of adaptation and modernization that led them to join the Mennonites. Of all the Amish communities that emerged, only about 15% became Amish of the old order. Another percentage became radical Mennonites, and another small part left the community.
What are the lifestyle and religious beliefs of an Amish?
For the most part, all Amish Village communities have a similar doctrine in which they maintain their Christian beliefs. They base their practices on the radicalization of Mennonite doctrine.
Members belonging to Amish groups maintain a simple life. In which their clothing, transport, and work are allusive to the eighteenth century. The Amish have their lives away from society. Creating settlements away from the big cities. Members seek health, family prayer, love of God, and teamwork for the community.
In relation to their code of conduct, the Amish are usually quite strict about it. It is a patriarchal society in which women’s rights are much degraded. Women must set aside their interests. Put your church, your family, and the community as your main interest.
When they are single, women must faithfully obey their fathers. And once they get married, they must complete submission to their husbands.
