Introduction to the Current Issue

This issue of the Ashland Theological Bulletin brings together the results of research completed for the Brethren Writers Conference which convened at Ashland Theological Seminary, Ashland, Ohio, April 19 and 20, 1974. The theme of the conference was “The Brethren—1785 to 1860.”

The conference and its theme were inspired in part out of the Brethren Conference at Broadway, Virginia, a year earlier. That conference pointed to new information forthcoming relative to “The Wilderness Period” of Brethren history. This conference brought together considerable specific data from the period.

Ashland Theological Seminary was honored to host this gathering of scholar-writers who came representing six Brethren fellowships. The Seminary appreciates the opportunity to make the fruits of the conference available to those interested in Brethren history.
