Unitarianism is a so-called “liberal” religious movement found mostly in Europe and North America. It emerged from John Calvin‘s Puritanism, and emphasizes the oneness of God while denying the Christian Trinity and the divinity of Jesus Christ.
Unitarianism is said to be based on reason and individual conscience and does not rely on any scriptural or religious authority.
A diverse movement, some groups embrace aspects of traditional religions, along with transcendental literature and folklore.
Unitarians may also advocate an awareness of current social and global issues.¹
