Our history

August Hermann Francke

 The monument August Hermann Franckes

The founder of the foundation (1663-1727) changed the world. Out of a deep Christian certainty of faith he developed the vision of a comprehensive improvement of the world. Details

History of the Francke Foundations

»A historical engraving by Gottfried August Gründler shows the general view of the Francke Foundations. Two angels fly above and carry the banner "Prospect des Waysen-Hauses zu Glaucha vor Halle«.

Halle's Pietism is regarded as the most important reform movement of Protestantism between Reformation and Enlightenment. Many of its aims are now topical again. Details

International Relations

From Halle, Francke's ideas spread all over the world. The historically grown international network is still intensively cultivated today. Details
