From about 1820, he was considered to be a Unitarian, and is often reckoned the greatest American Unitarian theologian; but he disapproved of Unitarianism as a sect, and regarded himself as belonging 'not to a sect but to the community of free minds.' He 'desired to escape the narrow walls of a particular church.'"--Cross: Oxford Dict. of the Christian Church (1963), p.262

9 COIT Remarks on Mr. Norton's "Statement of Reasons." [9 lines of quotes]
19TH-AM-MA-BOSTON-PEIRCE 
COIT, THOMAS WINTHROP. Remarks on Mr. Norton's "Statement of Reasons." [9 lines of quotes] Boston: Published by William Peirce, No. 9 Cornhill. 1834. (Printed by William C. Webster, 9 Cornhill, Boston.) Octavo. Disbound pamphlet, light foxing but a bit heavier on the first and last few pages. Pagination: (1) title, (1) printer, [3]-77, (1) blank. Amer. Imprints #23893. T. W. Coit (1803-1885) Episcopal Clergyman, theologian. He attended both Andover Theol. Seminary & Princeton Theol. Seminary, but was led by his studies to withdraw from the Congregational Church and join the Episcopalian. He pastored in Boston, then was called to the presidency of Transylvania University in Lexington Ky.; rector of Trinity Church, New Rochelle, NY; Prof. of church history, in Trinity College, Hartford, Ct.; rector of St. Paul's, Troy, NY; and professor of church history in the Berkeley Divinity School, Middletown, Conn. "In 1834 he began his career as a theologian by measuring himself against no less an antagonist than Andrews Norton; his Remarks on Mr. Norton's "Statement of Reasons" was, however, a belated rejoinder, for Norton;s Statement of Reasons for not Believing the Doctrine of Trinitarians had appeared in 1819, when Coit was still a student in college... He was an able student of the Bible, of liturgics, and of church history, a zealous churchman, and the master of a dignified vigorous English."--Dict. Amer. Biography IV:278.

These and countless individual thinkers, in and out of the Orthodox ranks, are fusing their thought, scholarship, and piety into one great fraternity, which will create and sustain a Church of broad sympathies, broad humanities, broad hopes, and a broad theology,--a Church, moreover which will accord with, and serve the American ideas of liberty and equality, as no old-world ecclesiastcism or theology can do. This humble volume, for the most part a mere compilation, has been prepared with the hope of increasing the true church sentiment in the hearts of the American people... The work of Protestantism will never be fully accomplished until the prayers and ordinances of the Church have been rescued from the dungeons of medieval scholasticism, and have become the inspiration of all the free

11 HAZARD, ROWLAND G. Essay on the Philosophical Character of Channing.
1845 Pamphlet in original printed paper wrapper worn at spine ends, dog-ears, light damp stains mostly in corners and on wrapper, light foxing. Octavo Boston: James Munroe and Company. 
HAZARD, ROWLAND G. Essay on the Philosophical Character of Channing. By Rowland G. Hazard. Boston: James Munroe and Company. 1845. Octavo.

Pamphlet in original printed paper wrapper, worn at spine ends, dog-ears, light damp stains mostly in corners and on wrapper, light foxing. Collation: 1-54. Pagination: (1) title, (1) copyright & printer, (1) preface, (1) blank, [5]-40 essay. Amer. Imprints #45-3074.

Rowland Gibson Hazard (1801-1888) manufacturer, writer on philosophical subjects. He managed the family woolen mills in Rhode Island for 50 years. He was a Free-Soiler and later a Republican, a member of the conventions that nominated Fremont, Lincoln and Grant. He also was a member of the Rhode Island House of Representatives and state Senate. "His first considerable publication, Language... the book attracted the attention of William Ellery Channing, who became intimate with him. Following the latter's death in 1842, Hazard wrote an Essay on the philosophical Character of Channing, published in 1845. At some time prior to 1840, Channing suggested that Hazard should undertake a refutation of Jonathan Edwards on the Will. Hazard began to make notes and by 1843 had elaborated his main points only to lose all the material he had collected through a mishap to a Mississippi steamer on which he had taken passage to New Orleans. Fourteen years later he returned to the work and published it in 1864 under the title Freedom of Mind in Willing; or Every Being That Wills a Creative First Cause. The book gained for Hazard the friendship of John Stuart Mill, who wrote to him: "I wish you had nothing to do but philosophize, for though I often do not agree with you, I see in everything you write a well-marked natural capacity for philosophy... In 1864, while in Europe, he sought out Mill. His Two letters on Causation and Freedom in Willing, Addressed to John Stuart Mill (1869) were the result of his conversations and correspondence with the British philosopher."--Dict. Amer. Biog. VIII:471-72. We are pleased to offer Hazard's important essay on Channing.

(1869)."

Henry Ware (1764-1845) One of the founders of Unitarianism in America, was Hollis professor of divinity in Harvard College, 1805-16 and in the divinity school until 1840. "His significance historically, altogether apart from his own pleasing personality and scholarly attainments, lies in the fact that his election to the chair of divinity evoked a controversy which led to the separation of Unitarians from Congregationalists. His election was opposed on the ground of his `liberal' leanings, but the opposition was unsuccessful."--New Schaff-Herzog Ency. Rel. Knowl. XII:272. Sermon on 2 Cor. v.18 "And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation."
