Known for their plain dress, simple living, and disinterest in modern technologies, the Amish have largely kept out of the limelight. In fact, since their split from Christianity in the 16th century, the Amish have strived to live outside the influence of modern society, forming small communities in Europe and later, in the United States. They have maintained stringent customs, like signing off away modern technology. But new reality television shows like Amish Mafia and Amish in the City are thrusting these peaceful, private people into mainstream media. And while these shows claim to reveal the private (and seemingly dramatic) lives of the Amish, the staggering inaccuracies of these shows only perpetuate myths of the Amish lifestyle.
This infographic reveals the true daily lives of the Amish, their customs, and a look at the violent discrimination they faced in 16th and 17th century Europe. While it may be difficult for you to fathom the idea of leading a similar lifestyle, take a moment to learn about the Amish. You may be surprised by what you read.
