The Radicalization of Theodore Parker

Theodore Parker has been acknowledged as the premier Unitarian minister and theologian of the 19th century. A founder of the transcendentalist movement and a leading abolitionist, he believed, along with William Ellery Channing, in peacefully ending slavery through legislative means. Eventually, however, Parker became radicalized leading him and other Unitarians to violence. We’ll have a glimpse of 19th century Unitarians and explore how rational people of faith might be called “terrorists” by today’s standards.
