Till The Peoples All Are One

17 November 2020

‘Till The Peoples All Are One’ Darwin’s Unitarian Connections, by Cliff Reed. Charles Darwin was connected to the Unitarian movement by a complex web of kinship and friendship, and by his unwavering commitment to causes such as the abolition of slavery. But to what extent – if any – are Unitarians justified in claiming the author of The origin of Species as ‘one of their own’? And what are the implications of Darwin’s ideas at a time when fundamentalists are trying to revive the old conflict between religion and science? Lindsey Press, 2011, RRP £7.50.
