Our Titles


The Reformation Collection

Reformation historian Roland H. Bainton called them "the Free Spirits." Neither Lutheran nor Reformed nor Anabaptist, the liberal wing of the Radical Reformation was characterized by belief in the power of reason and a mystical sense of union with the Divine. Our Reformation Collection highlights these independent thinkers.


The Hopedale Collection

Adin Ballou (1803-1890) was a pioneering theorist of nonviolence, a Christian socialist, and a social reformer. The Hopedale Collection consists of books by and about Adin Ballou and the utopian community he founded at Hopedale, Massachusetts.


The Unitarian Universalist Collection

These books, some published in association with the Unitarian Universalist Historical Society, trace the development of Unitarianism and Universalism in America and around the world.
