Visitor Info Amish Attractions ... Online Shopping 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.

  • 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.

    Click below to visit our sponsors.
    During the Reformation in 16th Century Europe, Luther and Calvin promoted the concepts of individual freedom and the priesthood of all believers. In what has been called "the radical reformation" , some religious reformers took these beliefs to a logical conclusion; they preached that the believer should separate themselves from all secular activities. One of the largest groups, the Anabaptists promoted: Baptism during adulthood after confession of faith, instead of during infancy The total separation of religion from and state Worship services in homes rather than at church The religious movements that they founded are called "free churches" as contrasted to the state churches which were normal for the time. Their groups were simple associations of adult Christians. Most groups were wiped out in wars or programs of genocide which were organized by various governments, main-line Protestant, and Roman Catholic churches. The Mennonites are named after Menno Simons (1496-1561), a Dutch Anabaptist leader. They were severely persecuted and fled to Switzerland and other more remote areas of Europe. The

    The Amish In Northern Indiana
    Goshen College lies between two of the most prominent Amish settlements in the mid-west: Skirted on the east by the third largest Amish settlement in America, Goshen students rub shoulders with this unique otherworldly community with relative ease and comfort. Highlighted by the newly-completed Shipshewana visitor center, Menno Hof , the community attracts more than a million visitors each year. The Amish broke away from the Mennonites nearly 300 years ago when differences arose among Anabaptist leaders in Switzerland and Alsace. Seeking a stricter lifestyle including the Streng Meidung , or shunning, which includes the social avoidance of erring church members. Tensions ran high and eventually in 1693, a complete split occurred. Forty years later, many Amish responded to William Penn's invitation to come to America and settle the land. No Amish now remain in Europe. Currently there are approximately 145,000 Amish men, women and children living in 22 states in the United States and in Ontario, Canada. There are 220 Amish settlements accommodating over 900 geographically determined church districts. Persistence of tradition and slowness to modernize have characterized the Amish as they have steadily sought to carve out their lifestyle which is a culture apart from the world. Even at the dawn of the 21st century, Amish are characterized as humble folkhard working, neighborly, otherwordly, agrarian, God-fearing, ethnically homogenouswho live the simple life and live it well.

    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.

    The Amish and the World Wide Web ! What a peculiar combination, old-fashioned quiet people and the most recent and as yet ungoverned, communication device. But there is an objective behind the aberration. The purpose of the page is:
  • to educate the general public about this particular ethnic group.
  • to provide information to local officials, business people and others who have contact with the Amish, particularly if these contacts began in the recent past.
  • to bring together in one site selected material found on the Web pertaining to the Amish.
  • to highlight the positive influences of diverse ethnic groups in our country. Lee Zook and Kyle White have worked with a variety of Amish groups when they had conflicts with their neighbors. Often these conflicts occur because the Amish avoid many of the modern conveniences and technologies that most post-modern people take for granted. They do so because of their religious beliefs and their tradition. These two items, religious beliefs and traditions, are so tightly interwoven that it is difficult to separate one from the other. As in many religions, for the Amish, belief to some extent flows from tradition.
    When confronted with some law or regulation that does not fit their religious belief, Amish sometimes ignore the law. In some cases, these conflicts escalate until Amish find themselves in court defending their actions. Often court cases have been argued using the basic tenants of the

    Welcome Center
    Lancaster, PA
    Visitor Info Amish Attractions ... Online Shopping 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.

    15. Amish Recipes
    Small collection of recipes, including several for breads and cakes.
    There was a small Amish community near where my Grandmother lived, and she would often buy baked goods from them, and collect some of their recipes. I visited an Amish home with her and Mom, once. The starkness of the woman's kitchen made me feel like I had stepped back in time. There was a distinct, "depression-era" shanty feel about the place, but it also felt unusually "home-like" at the same time. I have always been impressed with the simplicity of these people. Here are some things to keep in mind with reference to these recipes:
    • Vegetable shortening may be substituted for lard
    • Sweet milk = regular milk (whatever you have in your refrigerator for drinking, though I would avoid using skim milk.)
    • Top milk = whole milk
    • A moderate oven = usually, 350 degrees
