While there had been many attempts to convert native populations, why do you believe there was a new interest in religion at this time? Also, contrast how Moravian Indian conversion differed from earlier attempts to convert native populations and what did they offer them.I believe that a new interest in religion at this time in Native American history is sparked by the more peaceful approach taken by the Moravians and similar religious communities. In the past, Europeans explorers and settlers both sought out conquering first and conversion second, in theaftermath of intense and often times brutal wars, I am sure that both sides were more apt for a time of peace and forgiveness. Also, previous conversions of the Native American populations were attempted from a perspective of superiority from the Europeans, they thought that their way was the correct way and it was up to them to force conversion of the Indian people.
