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.There had been many attempts to convert native populations as settlers saw them as savages. TheIndian way of life was drastically different from the way settlers believed to be proper. However, when the Moravian’s came to the New World they focused on the similarities of the Christian religion and that of the Native Americans.“The Moravian focus on religion from the heart and their Love Feast were compatible with Native American spiritual traditions. Unlike other Protestant missionaries, the Moravians lived and dressed like the Indians and it was not uncommon for European visitors to mistake the Moravians for Indians.” ("The Moravian Missions to the Indians | Native American Netroots", 2019)
