John Biddle - Father of English Unitarianism - 350th Commemoration of his death
22 September marks the 350th Anniversary of the death of John Biddle, known as the "Father of English Unitarianism".
Earlier this year I wrote a blog post on John Biddle as part of a short series on several anniversaries related to religious freedom.
With his connection to Gloucester I am pleased that one event I have come across to mark the anniversary is that the Cotswold Group of Unitarian and Free Christian Churches "Worship Leaders Support Group" have organised a contemplative workshop on 27 October with the title "Cherishing our Freedom: A Day of Conversation and Exploration Inspired by the Life of John Biddle."
His links with Gloucester are set out in an essay by the Gloucester and District Archaeological Research Group.
