Notable Unitarians
 
 

 

Unitarians have a quaint habit of listing people of note who have been active Unitarians or have held Unitarian beliefs.

Unitarianism has an illustrious heritage of leaders in arts and letters, politics, science, education and humanitarianism so allow us to drop some names.
