This book investigates spiritual translation in early America. Moravian missionaries such as David Zeisberger and John Heckewelder pursued a utopian program of spiritual and linguistic community with Indian groups such as the Delawares. Their vision relied on early modern theories of linguistic and spiritual correspondences facilitated through translation.

Keywords:   Moravian missionaries, David Zeisberger, John Heckewelder
