MUENSTER, Paul, clergyman, born in Zanchtenthal, Moravia, 25 July, 1716; died in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, 14 October, 1792. He was a direct descendant of members of the Ancient brethren's church, and his parents were persecuted with such severity as to cause his father's death. In 1729 he and his mother, led by his brother, who had previously escaped but returned in order to assist them, made their way safely to Herrnhut, in Saxony, Paul carrying strapped to his back a copy of the hymnal of the Ancient brethren, which he deemed to be his greatest treasure. The volume is now in the archives of the Moravian church at Bethlehem. He entered the ministry in 1747, and, after labor-lug for fourteen years in England, came to this country in 1761, having received an appointment as senior minister at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, which post he filled for thirty-one years.
