Dean James I. Fazio

The Ninth International Brethren History Conference put on by the Brethren Archivists & Historians Network (BAHN), which will be held at the Sidholme Hotel, Elysian Fields, Sidmouth, Devon, England (UK), on July 2-4. The conference theme is “Elements and Ordinances in Brethren Life” and the paper Dean Fazio will be presenting is titled “A Sketch of the Elements and Ordinances of Nearly Two Dozen Proto-Brethren Assemblies from 1818-1820.” The significance of his research is that it focuses on a period of history that pre-dates John Nelson Darby’s initial gathering with the early brethren to break bread in Dublin in 1827-1828, which later came to be known as the Plymouth Brethren movement.
