9781420871104: The Nobleman Among the Brothers: The Life of the Pomeranian Farmer, Christian, and Statesman Adolph von Thadden-Trieglaff

While from this volume the reader will learn about the agricultural, economic, cultural, and political systems in place in Pomerania in the mid 1800's, its greater appeal today might be for the role Adolph von Thadden played in the church of his day and in the spiritual lives of those around him. Adolph Ferdinand von Thadden, a Pomeranian country nobleman! He was this in a literal sense. Though by birth a Berliner, he was firmly rooted in Pomerania. The key to understanding the personality of Adolph von Thadden is found elsewhere than in his nobility, his Pomeranianism and Prussianism. Instead, it is found in his Christian convictions. His love for Christ became the cantus firmus (main melody) which rang through his whole being and blossomed in his service of state and church, in the family and in his calling. Whether serious or in jest he seemed to have an apt quotation from the Bible or the classics for most every situation. His most embarrassing experience might have been the burning down of most of Trieglaff with the errant fireworks at daughter Marie's "fire wedding." His most painful year contained the death of a son, daughter, and wife-his handling of these tragedies influenced the conversion of friend Ott von Bismarck to the Christian faith. Von Thadden's Free Conferences in Trieglaff were attended by clergy and laity who were interested in or involved in the renewal movement in the church in Pomerania. Those who were resisting the Prussian Union (called "Old Lutherans") also found a hearing at the meetings he hosted in Trieglaff. On reading this book one can become totally impressed with the Christian faith of Adolph von Thadden, and his effective sharing of that faith with his family, his farmworkers and townspeople, fellow estate owners, in Parliament, and in the church in Trieglaff and in Pomerania. He truly was a "Noble Man Among the Brothers".

About the Author:

Wolfgang Marzahn, a German Lutheran pastor and author, researched and wrote extensively about the Pomeranian people. In his retirement in 1982 he made a trip to Brazil to learn more about the Pomeranians who had immigrated to Brazil in the 1800s. He is the author of several books including Die Zistersienser in Pommern (1984) and St. Michael zu Hildesheim (1959).His passion and care for a healthy church, his admiration for those who contend for the faith in their own lives, and his love for Pomerania are all evident in The Nobleman Among the Brothers.
