THE AMISH COOK: Gloria Talks About the Amish

A long, long overdue post. I want to apologize to those who posed questions on my Amish Country page back in November, and I never got around to answering them.

Editor’s Note: I really liked this column from Gloria, because she accurately illustrates the vast variety of views within the Amish church.

They simply go about it a bit differently. The Amish are divided into church groups, usually about persons per church. And by church, they mean fellowship, since they hold church in their homes, shops or barns. There are actually many different types or orders of Amish. The Swartzentruber Amish are considered to be the lowest order, with the New Order Amish the highest, since they hold Sunday school on the alternate worship Sundays. It simply is the way it is with the Amish. Those in-between are the Old Order, by far the most numerous among the Amish population.

The orders are simply determined by rules of the church leaders. Clearly, defining the Amish is a lot harder than their simple lifestyles might let on. Nevertheless, they all celebrate the holidays one way or another. Their holiday traditions and rituals vary from family to family, church to church and sect to sect, not much different that any other culture or ethnic group.

The recent abduction and return of two New York Amish girls has once more brought focus on America’s “Plain People,” whose shunning of technology and seemingly simple lives have long fascinated outsiders. For instance, in the New York case, police had to use a sketch artist to produce an image of one of the girls because of the sect’s prohibition on photos. Here are 10 things to know about the fascinating lives of these Americans, also known as the Pennsylvania Dutch.

History The Amish have been in America for a long time. The first ones arrived in the early 18 th century to escape religious persecution in Europe and to find land to farm. The sect arose from a late th century schism in the Anabaptist church by followers of Jakob Amman, a Swiss minister who believed that adherents should “conform to the teachings of Christ and His apostles” and “forsake the world” in their daily lives. The word “Amish” derives from his name.

Language The Pennsylvania Dutch are not Dutch at all. The word Dutch is a corruption of “Deutsch” or German, of which they speak an ancient dialect. Because of its isolation, the language has a very different pronunciation than current German and has been influenced by the English of surrounding populations. Some Amish, notably in Indiana, speak a version closer to Swiss-German.

With farming at the center of their lives and their population rapidly expanding due to large families, the Amish, anxious not be influenced by modern ways, are always seeking out new land away from urban areas. After initially settling in Ohio, they are nowfound in 30 states as well as Canada. Ohio has the largest Amish population, followed by Pennsylvania and Indiana.
