Item description for Mennofolk: Mennonite And Amish Folk Traditions (Studies in Anabaptist and Mennonite History, No. 43) by Ervin Beck...
Overview MennoFolk offers the abundance of Mennonite life: jokes, origin tales, trickster tales, and the Reggie Jackson urban legend, along with analysis of folk traditions in the context of Mennonite and Amish history, culture, and beliefs. Ervin Beck studies Mennonite and Amish paintings on glass and family records and considers the Mennonite relief sales as folk festivals. This signature book is a treasure for folklorists, but is also a gift for anyone who cares about the Mennonite experience and is concerned with questions of conduct, community, and conviction.
