This Day In Unitarian Universalist History

A Treasury of Anniversaries and Milestones From 600 Years of Religious Tradition

by Frank Schulman

“If we steadily apply ourselves to even a portion of the events, personalities and ideas presented in these pages, we will inevitably begin to feel our ordinary course of living enriched, to feel that some new dimension, some new gravity, has been added to our experience.”
—from the Foreword by David Robinson

This treasury of anniversaries and milestones marks the significant events in Unitarian and Universalist faith heritage for every day of the year. This Day in Unitarian Universalist History spans six centuries of liberal religious tradition—from Transylvania, where Prince John Sigismund proclaimed himself a Unitarian in 1568 and published the Edict of Torda, to the consolidation of Unitarians and Universalists in 1961, to the Unitarian Universalist Association's modern movement of welcoming all people regardless of race, gender, sexual/affectional orientation or ability. Well organized and easy to use, this book’s unique day-by-day format is ideal for ministers, lay leaders, religious educators and anyone who wishes to make Unitarian Universalism religious history a part of his or her daily life. The extensive index includes major themes in Unitarian and Universalist history and information about congregations.

Frank Schulman was chaplain, dean, and fellow in theology at Harris Manchester College at Oxford University. His other books include Blasphemous and Wicked: The Unitarian Struggle for Equality, 1813–1844; A Fine Victorian Gentleman: The Life and Times of Charles Wellbeloved and James Martineau: This Conscience-Intoxicated Unitarian.

Praise for This Day in Unitarian Universalist History

“Schulman is to be commended for striking a fine balance between both Unitarian and Universalist and American and European entries in his book.”
—Charles Howe, author of The Essential Clarence Skinner, For Faith and Freedom and The Larger Faith
