History/ fondation

Amish is a specific religious group, which was founded in Switzerland.
During the time of reformation a lot of new religious comunities were founded like the mennonits, too. They were very strict and so they had a lot of opponents. But for Jakob Annman this religion still wasn’t strict enough. His opinion was that just adults could be baptized and the mennonits weren’t as consistent as he wanted. A lot of more reasons him were given that he founded a new and stricter religion: the Amish
This time a lot of people wanted to join Amman and Amish got bigger and bigger. With that a lot of problems came. Married-couple who weren’t in the same group weren’t allowed to got devorce but they were even though not allowed to follow marital responsibilities.
In about 18th the Mennonits and the Amish fought against each other. It got harder and harder to live in Switzerland and Germany and so the Amish immegrated to America. They settled down in Pennsilvania.
Today about 150000 Amish live in 26 states of the US and Canada, most of them live in Lancaster County, Pennsilvania. Noticeable is that in the diffrent counties often are the same names because amish usual seatteld with the whole family. In Europ there are no Amish any more

Language
The Amish speak a kind of german with a strong english accent. They also add words and the pronunciation of Switzerdütsch. But you can not uderstand thire language because its such a confused mix.
In the church they speak an old form of english to read the bible. Today the young Amish need to learn english, too.


The live
Amish live on farm together in groups, far away from towns and cities. There they have to follow many rules and live simpel and very religiouse. They aren’t allowed to have electricity, which means they have to light their houses with oil candles and to cook with gas or fire. And of course they haven’t got TV, computers mobiele phones or something like that. Now Amish are allowed to have a car but just when it is coulored black, which shows the shame for having this.
But they all have to wear the same clothes. Men wear black trouseres, black jackets and a hat. Usual the older ons have a beard. Women always wear dresses and they never cut their hair. They have to wear there it in different ways wheater they are married or not.
The techniqal equipment they use is very simple. Amish do everything with their hand they say technic is in the world but not from the world! And you have to work hard for a good life in heaven.
All this is written down in a big order. The order now is more liberal than the older one but the most importest thing for amish ever was and ever is, is and the community is more important than everyone eles.


Religious practices
Amish haven’t got a church. They have their prayer service in privat homes. Every Sunday they meet at an other one. Men and women aren’t allowed to celebrate this toghether. After the 4 houres of prayer service the women prepare a big lunch for the otheres. While the men eat the women have to look at the children and bring the men new food. When men are finished also the girls are allowed to eat.
Wedding typically are hold on Tuesday and Thursday in Novembre.

Health care
For Amish it’s very important to be and live healthy. But they don’t want to go to an hospital. They prefere their own medicin and their own doctors, who leared thier job from books which are written by Amish. It’s interessting that there are a lot of more people with a DNA defency than some where else. But a reason could be that there are just 2two or three families who founded the Amish so they are all relateedt and it’s like incest.



Childhood of Amish
Amish want their children to go to school as soon as possible. As a result most children start to lern reading, writing and math at the age of five. However they don’t have subjects like biology, science and evokution because doesn’t fit to their relligion. As a rule they go to school for 8 years. The teacher is a woman from the farm who usually is not married.
Finally at the age of 13 they finish school for working at the field, building houses, make clothe or something like that. But they also have to help their parnts every time.
At the time where Amish become grown-up they should be baptized. But berfore this they are allowed to test life outside the community. Amish have no or just less money and so life outside is as hard that about 85% decide to return to their farm. Nevertheless, if they decide against the religion to stay at the outside they are not allowed to come back at no time. Consequently they aren’t able to contact or visit their family.
In the free time children play ball games, table games and hide and seek. Girls play with dolls which are hand made. In summer they also can go swimming or fishing.

Amish earn money
Amish are very famouse for their Quits, which are made of little pieces of cloth. They are made together to a big blanket for instance. They sell these wonderful textiles in shop along a road near their farm. There you also eat Amish food. The money they get there they need to buy wood and stones for building houses
