Unitarianism in America, by George Willis Cooke

Harvard Square Library presents this historic article by scholar George Willis Cooke, written over 100 years ago and detailing the history of Unitarianism in America in the nineteenth century. The article describes many of the historic figures in American Unitarianism. Although some contemporary, twenty-first scholars could no doubt critique the article for its self-congratulatory approach, it can nevertheless be read as itself a historical document exhibiting Unitarianism’s view of itself at the beginning of the twentieth century.
