Taizé is the name of a small French village in Burgundy where Roger Schultz, a young seminary student founded a simple prayer community offering hospitality, refuge and reconciliation in response to the hostilities of the second world war.
As knowledge and appreciation of the community grew, more people from all over Europe came to pray with the brothers of Taizé, leading to the chanting of songs and prayers in a variety of languages.
Now, thousands of young people from all over the world and a variety of Christian traditions come to Taizé.
