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.

Unitarians may also advocate an awareness of current social and global issues.¹
