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.
