Deals with the related theme of charity caused by the gradual end of home‐parish benevolence. A mix of enlightened and Moravian forms of charity, the idea and practice of saving children, the Protestant German use of New Testament and early Church ‘diacony’, particularly women ‘deaconesses’, to care for the poor and the sick, and Wichern's home mission based on the Christian family principle of ‘works of saving love’ are examined.
