Bordelum Sect

Bordelum Sect In the year 1739 a separatistic party took its rise at Bordelum, near Hensburg, in the duchy of Holstein. Its founder was the Saxon licentiate David Bar, who claimed a higher spiritual life and rejected all ecclesiastical order. He even despised the Church, which he called the devil's house, rejected the sacraments and marriage, and claimed the same liberty which we find in the Oneida Community. An edict of king Christian VI, issued June 11, 1739, made an end to the immoral doings of the leader, who died in 1743. See Tschackert in Herzog's Real-Encyklop. (2d ed.), s.v.; Lichtenberger, Encyclopedie des Sciences Religieuses, s.v. (B. P.)
