Stuttgart – Ev. Diakonissenanstalt
In 1854, business woman Charlotte Reihlen and Stuttgart Prelate Sixt Karl Kapff were the driving forces behind the founding of the Protestant Deaconess Institution Stuttgart. Inspired by the model of the diaconal work of the Fliedner couple in Kaiserswerth, they offered unmarried women a community in faith, life and ministry as deaconesses providing nursing care for sick and old people.
