Thoughts selected from the writings of the Rev. William E. Channing, Channing, William E.
11 Channing, William E. Thoughts selected from the writings of the Rev. William E. Channing
Boston, MA Crosby, Nichols, and Co. 1854 1st Edition Thus Hardcover Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
Blue pocket sized hardcover with gilt edges. Book in very good condition with minor browning to pages due to age. William Ellery Channing (April 7, 1780-October 2, 1842), minister of the Federal Street Church in Boston, Massachusetts, 1803-42, was a spokesman during the Unitarian controversy for those liberal—or Unitarian—churches within Massachusetts' Standing Order of churches. His published sermons, lighting a path between orthodoxy and infidelity, were widely influential abroad as well as throughout the United States. His Christian humanism inspired both religious and literary features of the Transcendentalist movement. An exemplar of Christian piety and a champion of human rights and dignity, he effectively fostered social reform in areas of free speech, education, peace, relief for the poor, and anti-slavery. His pulpit orations made him, according to Emerson, "a kind of public Conscience." Channing graduated from Harvard at the head of the class of 1798. In archival sleeve for protection. Scarce if not rare. ; 64mo 3" - 4½" tall; 160 pages
