Emerson, Ralph Waldo
- (1803–82)Philosopher and Sect Founder.Emerson was educated at Harvard University in the United States of America. Ordained into the Congregationalist ministry, he served for a time as a pastor in Boston. In 1832 he resigned his position and became a leading voice in the Transcendentalist movement. The Transcendentalists went beyond Unitarianism and, influenced by the mysticism of Samuel Taylor coleridge, saw God as immanent in nature. Emerson’s address to the Harvard Divinity School delivered in 1838 clarified the distinction between the two groups; in particular he advocated ‘faith like Christ’s’ rather than ‘faith in Christ’. Today he is mainly remembered for his essays on a wide variety of subjects.W.R. Hutchison, The Transcendentalist Ministers: Church Reform in the New England Renaissance (1959);R.L.
