Przasnysz Parish History

Original English translation by Georg Schoning with editing by Gerd Klatt.

Source: Die evangelisch-augsburgischen Gemeinden in Polen 1555-1939 by Eduard Kneifel. [The Evangelical-Augsburg (Lutheran) Parishes in Poland, 1555-1939]

Note: The term "ewangelic" translates to "evangelical" in English but in German context, especially in materials written by Kneifel, a Lutheran pastor, it should be thought of as reference to followers of Martin Luther. There was no church in Europe named as the Lutheran church, as is the case in North America. In other contexts you will find "ewangelische-Reformierte", the Reformed Church, "ewanglische-Unierte", the United Church and perhaps others. Other denominations such as Baptists (Baptisten) or Mennonites (Mennoniten) did not, for some reason, get the "ewangelic" descriptor.
