Exploring UU History

In the half century since the founding of the Unitarian Universalist Association, no one has attempted to bring together the major primary sources for Unitarian and Universalist history—until now.


A Documentary History of Unitarian Universalism, edited by Dan McKanan, is a two-volume collection featuring writings from ancient heretics, Reformation-era radicals, denominational founders, prophetic preachers, social change activists, theologians, and more.

This Winter and Spring we will explore these volumes at Twinkle’s Place. Dates TBA soon!


Dan McKanan is a scholar of religion and social transformation who has taught at Harvard Divinity School since 2008. He holds the Emerson chair, which was created to renew Harvard’s historic connection to the Unitarian Universalist tradition, and serves on the UU Panel on Theological Education and the board of the UU History and Heritage Society.
