The Plymouth Brethren is a conservative, Evangelical Christian movement, whose history can be traced to Dublin, Ireland, in the late 1820s. Although the group is notable for not taking any official "church name" to itself, nor having an official clergy or liturgy, thetitle, "The Brethren," is one that many of their number are comfortable wi th, in that the Bible designates all believers as "brethren." "Brethren assemblies" are commonly perceived as being divided into at least two branches, the "Open Brethren" and the "Exclusive [or Close] Brethren".
