Unitarian Universalism and Class: A faith for a Few?

Brahmin Culture for the Masses

Rev. Mark W. Harris

Date: May 1, 2008 

Location: Harvard Divinity School 

This lecture will look at the alliance of business, Harvard College, Brahmin culture, and liberal religion. How did class determine our history and who became involved with the Unitarian movement? We will also look at a few people who wanted to spread the Unitarian faith to the masses in more evangelical styles, including Margaret Fuller’s brother, Arthur. 

Mark W. Harris is the minister at the First Parish of Watertown. He is the author of the Historical Dictionary of Unitarian Universalism and of the UUA pamphlet "UU Origins: Our Historic Faith." He is also an adjunct professor at Andover Newton Theological Seminary and Starr King School.
