This chapter explores Isaac Mayer Wise’s connections with the Free Religious Association. This was an organization founded in 1867. The leaders were a distinguished intellectual group from the National Conference of Unitarian Churches who could no longer accept the more traditional position of the national body. The Free Religious Association was avowedly of a non-Christian character — a standpoint that had become a matter of contention within the official Unitarian camp. The objects of the association were ‘to promote the interests of pure religion, to encourage the scientific study of theology, and to increase fellowship in the spirit’. In practice the association reflected the humanistic theism espoused by Octavius Brooks Frothingham.

Keywords:   Free Religious Association, Gentiles, Unitarian ministers, Unitarian churches, theology, Octavius Brooks Frothingham
