This summer we heard from Cory Anderson on the new Journal of Amish and Plain Anabaptist Studies (JAPAS).

JAPAS LogoJAPAS is an open source (free and online) journal focused, as Cory described it, “on plain Anabaptist groups in seven broadly defined traditions: the Swiss Brethren/Mennonites, the Low German/Russian Mennonites, the Hutterites, the Amish (of course), the Brethren/German Baptists, the Apostolic Christians, and the Bruderhof.”

JAPAS is published twice yearly, and the latest issue is now available online (accessible here).

Articles cover topics including Amish tunebooks, a Beachy Amish community in Georgia, tracking injuries in Old Order communities, return of the Bruderhof to Germany, and a 2013 Amish settlement report.

If you’d like a hard copy, print editions of JAPAS are available from Ridgeway Publishers at 585-798-0050, for $14.99 + $4.95 shipping and handling.
