Pennsylvania Dutch Country Welcome Center Here are some questions and answers about the Amish, the Mennonites, the Brethren, and the other "Plain People" of the Pennsylvania Dutch Country.
Who are the Amish? Are they the same as the Pennsylvania Dutch?
The Amish are a religious group who live in settlements in 22 states and Ontario, Canada. The oldest group of Old Order Amish, about 16-18,000 people live in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. The Amish stress humility, family and community, and separation from the world.
Although Lancaster Amish are Pennsylvania Dutch, all Pennsylvania Dutch are not Amish. The Pennsylvania Dutch are natives of Central Pennsylvania, particularly Lancaster and its surrounding counties. Unlike the Amish, they are not all one religion. Instead, their common bond is a mainly German background (Pennsylvania Dutch is actually Pennsylvania Deutsch, or German). They also have Welsh, English, Scottish, Swiss, and French ancestry.
What is the history of the Amish?

There is no consensus on exactly where the Amish fit within Christianity: Some consider them conservative Protestants. Most Amish would probably consider themselves to be Anabaptists J Gordon Melton, head of the Institute for the Study of American Religion , classifies them as part of the European Free-Church Family along with Mennonites, Brethren Quakers and other denominations. The Amish movement was founded in Europe by Jacob Amman (~1644 to ~1720 CE ), from whom their name is derived. In many ways, it started as a reform group within the Mennonite movement an attempt to restore some of the early practices of the Mennonites. The beliefs and practices of the Amish were based on the writings of the founder of the Mennonite faith, Menno Simons (1496-1561), and on the 1632 Mennonite Dordrecht Confession of Faith . The Amish who split from Mennonites generally lived in Switzerland and in the southern Rhine river region. During the late 17th century, they separated because of what they perceived as a lack of discipline among the Mennonites. Some Amish migrated to the United States, starting in the early 18th century. They initially settled in Pennsylvania. Other waves of immigrants became established in New York, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Missouri Ohio, and other states.

Home Welcome to Ohio's Amish Heartland ‹ the home of the largest concentration of Amish in the world.
Autumn is on our doorstep now. Days are lengthening, as are the shadows. The leaves are beginning to turn and soon will be brilliant shades of red and yellow. And most of the children, whether joyfully or reluctantly, have returned to school.
We hope you take a trip here during September. Autumn has much to offer in Amish Country; take advantage of it all (if you can't come in person, we hope you enjoy reading about us!).

Cultural Diversity: Eating in America
Patricia Shenberger The Amish are often referred to as the plain people, known for their unadorned style of dress, horse-drawn vehicles and family-centered lifestyle. A strong faith in God and church traditions determine their ways. Ohio has the largest settlement of Amish in the United States; Pennsylvania ranks second and Indiana ranks third. The largest communities in Ohio are in Holmes, Wayne, Ashland and Geauga counties. Each of the groups within the Amish culture-Old Order Amish, New Order Amish, Mennonite, Beachy Amish, "Swiss" Mennonites, or Swartzentruber Amish, for example-have their own set of rules about what is acceptable from the world around them.
Food Habits and Their Relationship to Dietary Guidelines
Eating habits vary among the Amish depending on where they live, the type of work they do, and the mode of transportation they use. Traditionally the Amish community has been farm based with families growing or raising most of their own food and traveling by horse and buggy. This pattern is changing in urban areas, however, because of the scarcity of land and hazards of horse-and-buggy travel. Many Amish are leaving their farms, and gardens are becoming smaller. Most Amish, especially those who still tend large gardens and orchards, eat a variety of foods. Because much of their work is physically demanding, many are not concerned about reducing the amount of fat in their diets. Those with access to motorized transportation buy more high-fat snack foods and eat out in restaurants more often than those who travel by horse and buggy.

  • Name : The Amish Founder : Jacob Amman Date of Birth : February 19, 1656 Birth Place : Switzerland Year Founded Sacred Texts
  • The Bible is the sacred text of the Amish people. The Amish interpret the Bible literally and directly in many cases which explains their lifestyle. In addition to the Bible there are unwritten rules on which the Amish people base their morals and way of life. The Ordung are the unwritten rules of the church and are not specified in writing, but are known and closely followed.
  • Cult or Sect:
  • Negative sentiments are typically implied when the concepts "cult" and "sect" are employed in popular discourse. Since the Religious Movements Homepage seeks to promote religious tolerance and appreciation of the positive benefits of pluralism and religious diversity in human cultures, we encourage the use of alternative concepts that do not carry implicit negative stereotypes. For a more detailed discussion of both scholarly and popular usage of the concepts "cult" and "sect," please visit our Conceptualizing "Cult" and "Sect" page, where you will find additional links to related issues.

    1 pound fresh chestnuts
    1/2 cup melted butter or margarine 4 cups bread crumbs 2 well beaten eggs 1/2 cup chopped celery 1 1/2 teaspoon salt 4 teaspoon poultry seasoning 1/2 cup chopped celery Wash chestnuts, make two slits on each shell, and bake for 15 minutes at 475 degrees. Shell, boil in water to cover for 20 minutes. Chop fine. Mix with the melted butter, bread, crumbs, salt, poultry seasoning, egg and celery. Toss well. Yields enough to stuff a 18 pound bird. Shelling Chestnuts Pan/Oven Method Cut a one inch gash on flat side of nut and put in a skillet, allowing 1/2 teaspoon of butter to each cup of chestnuts. Shake over heat until butter is melted. Put in oven and let stand for 5 minutes. Remove from oven and with a small knife take off shells. By this method shelling and blanching are accomplished at the same time, as the inside skins will adhere to the outer shells.

    Visitor Info
    Local Info Amish Attractions ... Mud Sales
    Pennsylvania Dutch Country Welcome Center In addition to the information we have provided elsewhere on the Amish , this section answers many of the more frequently asked questions regarding the Amish, their faith, and their lifestyle. The answers to these questions were provided by the resident experts at the Mennonite Information Center "Can an outsider join the Amish church/community?" "What are the beliefs of the Amish?" "Why don't the Amish use electricity?" ... "I understand your belief in nonresistance and pacifism. Does this principal extend to personal situations where you are confronted with imminent evil say a known murderer confronting you and your family in your home? Can you use force to preserve your life in this situation? To what extent? What is the Biblical basis for your position?"
    "Why don't the Amish use electricity?"
    "Amish people interpret linking with electrical wires as a connection with the world - and the Bible tells them they are not to be "conformed to the world." (Romans 12:2) In 1919 the Amish leaders agreed that connecting to power lines would not be in the best interest of the Amish community. They did not make this decision because they thought electricity was evil in itself, but because easy access to it could lead to many temptations and the deterioration of church and family life. Most of us today would think it impossible to live without the modern conveniences such as electricity and cars. What makes the Old Order Amish unique is not that they get along without modernity, but that they choose to do without it when it would be readily available. The Amish value simplicity and self-denial over comfort, convenience and leisure. Their lifestyle is a deliberate way of separating from the world and maintaining self-sufficiency. (Amish are less threatened by power shortages caused by storm, disaster, or war.) As a result there is a bonding that unites the Amish community and protects it from outside influences such as television, radios, and other influences."
