UU Trivia Question of the Day #52

General Assembly 2010 will be held in Minneapolis from June 23-27.  Believe it or not, planning is already well underway, and today’s Unitarian Universalist Trivia Question of the Day is related to this planning.

In keeping with the UU cult of the saints, famous Unitarians and Universalists are sometimes honored at GA if it falls in a significant year for them.  2010 will be the bicentennial of two major Unitarian figures of the past, both of them involved in the Transcendentalist movement.  These two giants will be honored officially at GA.  Can you guess who they both are?

    One is Theodore Parker. 200 yrs after his birth, and 150 since his death.

    Oh! James Freeman Clarke. Also born 1810.

  2. Transient and Permanent

    Ogre, excellent work. You are correct about Clarke. And you’re right that Parker’s bicentennial is in 2010 and that he obviously fits the question 100%. . . yet, believe it or not, he’s not actually the other figure that the UUA is discussing. So, keep guessing, there’s yet another major Unitarian Transcendentalist born in 1810.

  3. The Eclectic Cleric

    William Henry Channing would qualifiy. Margaret Fuller also, I believe.

  4. Margaret Fuller is being celebrated.
