Count Nikolaus Ludwig von Zinzendorf (1700-1760) was a German religious leader and founder of the Moravian Church, also known as the Herrnhuter Brüdergemeine. Born in Dresden, Germany, Zinzendorf was a member of the nobility and was educated in law and theology. He was deeply influenced by the pietistic movement of the time, which emphasized a personal experience of faith and a life of devotion to God. In 1722, Zinzendorf established the Herrnhuter community on his estate in Saxony, which became a center for religious revival and mission. The community was known for its commitment to the principles of unity, love, and mission, and became a model for other Christian communities throughout Europe. Zinzendorf also played a key role in the development of the Moravian Church, which became one of the leading Protestant denominations of the time. He is remembered as a visionary leader and a pioneer in the development of modern mission, and his legacy continues to inspire Christians around the world.
