The Amish are distinctly recognizable from film and television. They are a religious sect of Pennsylvania Dutch with their origins in the Swiss Anabaptist tradition. They’re best known for their simple lifestyles and their unusual forms of plain dress as well as a stout refusal to dabble in any form of modern technology.

In general, the Amish are considered to be a harmless, if unusual, group of people. But there are things that the Amish don’t want you to know and with very good reason.

Here we take a look at 15 things that you don’t know about the Amish and why.
