Adult Education Class on Transcendentalism: Then and Now

January 16 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Please join us for Part 2 of the 4-part adult religious education class titled: Transcendentalism: Then and Now, led by Rev. John Buehrens. Hosted virtually at First Unitarian Rochester, and co-sponsored by several UU congregations across New York State. Sundays: 16, 23, and 30, 2022 from 7:00 – 8:30 PM here via Zoom

This Sunday, January 16 will be about the forgotten women in the Transcendentalist movement: six of them; three occasionally remembered – Margaret Fuller, Julia Ward Howe, and Emily Dickinson; and three now almost totally forgotten, sadly – Elizabeth Palmer Peabody, Lydia Maria Child, and Caroline Healey Dall.

The remaining sessions will cover the following topics:

  • January 23 will be about white and Black Transcendentalists in the anti-slavery/abolitionist movement. I will have mentioned some of this material in my January 16 sermon, but hardly all some of the best stories.

January 30 is about the Transcendentalists as American pioneers in interfaith understanding and concern for the environment, ending with discussions of how their legacy continues today.
