Description:

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 UUA’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 UU 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.

Quotes:

"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
