Robert Burns

1759 – Robert Burns, the beloved national poet of Scotland and composer of “Auld Lang Syne,” was born in Ayrshire, Scotland. He published several satires of orthodox revivalism for which he is celebrated by Unitarians of Scotland as a religious forbearer. Though he was not formally connected with Unitarianism, there is no doubt about his Unitarian beliefs.
