Chapter XX: “Religious Tendencies in Colonial New England”
by Earl Morse Wilbur
in A History of Unitarianism in Transylvania, England, and America
(Harvard, 1952), pages 379-400
As the definitive historian of Unitarianism, Wilbur’s chapters on American Unitarianism are a must reading for a background in polity. The reader should strive to look through theological issues to see if there were also involved issues relating to the organization and functioning of the church.
