A biography of the Reverend William Turner, a Unitarian and founder
of the Newcastle-upon-Tyne Literary & Philosophical Society in
1793, and of many other institutions in Newcastle, from the Royal
Jubilee School to the Trustee Savings Bank. The book sets
Unitarianism in the context of the late-Georgian period, describing
both its beliefs and the contemporary restraints upon their
expression. It sketches the Unitarian enthusiasm for education in
science and the humanities, in addition to the conventional
classics, and shows how Turner's connections with men such as
Joseph Priestley, and colleges like Warrington Academy, contributed
to his achievements in Newcastle.
