The pupil, the teacher and the teaching in Moravian education: an example from the Moravian school in Gothenburg, 1787-1859 The Moravian church has since its early stages in the 18th century emphasized education and teaching for children and youth. By this followed the establishment of schools, of which several came to be reputable and appeal to families who were members of the Moraivan church as well as as to others, primarely to wealthy and prosperous people without explicit connection to any Moravian congregation. Moravian schools were to be found not only in Gemeinorten, societies that were built upon the ideology of the church like danish Christiansfeld, but also in the Moravian diaspora such as in Sweden where the the Moravian congregation existed as a subgroup of the Swedish church. With the school of the Moravian congregation in Gothenburg (”Societetsskolan för döttrar och söner” which lasted 1787-1859 for girls and 1799-1829 for boys) as an example this paper aims to discuss to what extent and in what way this institution mirror ideals of the national education as well as main features of schools in the worldwide Moravian church. By using discursive tools the paper seeks to move beyond narratives on organization and activities to instead, critically revolve around categories as the pupil, the teacher and teaching with special attention to music and singing. The paper is based on written sources, such as information about the school addressed to the public and on memoirs and Gemeindiarien, which are documents primarily aimed for members of the Moravian church.
