Who were some famous Unitarian Universalists?

The lists included on this site link the names of some famous Unitarians, Universalists, and (after their merger in 1961) Unitarian Universalists, with some basic information about them. The emphasis is on UUs in the United States and Canada.

Finding Famous UUs

Or just browse the names, starting with any topic.  Don't forget the And More category for a few people who couldn't easily be categorized, and don't forget to take a look at the History Notes and Links for more information on UUs and history.

Why the interest in "Famous UUs"?

UUism is a creedless religion -- our deeds speak louder than our words -- and so it may be easier to understand UUism as a living faith by noting the individuals who have been associated with UUism.

How did you decide whom to include in these lists?

These lists have been developed by different people at different times.  (See the credits page.)  All individuals included have some connection with Unitarianism, Universalism, or Unitarian Universalism:  they attended a congregation regularly, they were members or ministers of a congregation, or they identified themselves in public or private statements as Unitarians and Universalists.

Both Unitarianism and Universalism began as theological tendencies within other religious movements; thus, some individuals represented here may have considered themselves Unitarian and/or Universalist before those were organized denominations.

What is a Unitarian? What is a Universalist?

For more complete answers on those questions, you will want to consult the Unitarian Universalist Association web site at www.uua.org.  Our working definition for this site is stated above.
