Library Co. of Phila.
Germantown and The Germans: Exhibition Catalogue
Edwin Wolf 2nd (au)
Catalogue of an Exhibition of Books, Manuscripts, Prints & Photos, Oct. 1983 to Jan. 1984. As Catholic persecution of Protestants declined, persecution by the established Protestants of the non-conformist sects -- Mennonites, Moravians, Quakers, Pietists & others -- increased. William Penn had in 1671 & 1677 visited many sectarian communities along the Rhine seeking converts. When he received his grant of land from Charles II in 1681, Penn extended an invitation to German & Dutch dissenters to settle in PA. They first arrived in Phila. in 1683. The emphasis of this exhibition is the history, culture, & people of Germantown. The urban village of Germantown became less & less German as the 19th cent. unfolded, & more industrial.
