Theodore Parker ( 1810-1860 ) graduated from Harvard Divinity School in 1836 and was ordained to the West Roxbury, Massachusetts, Unitarian Church in 1837 . He played a pivotal role in moving Unitarianism away from a Bible-centered faith, and in 1841, when he gave an ordination sermon entitled " A Discourse on the Transient and Permanent in Christianity," he emerged as a major figure in the Transcendentalist movement. Following the sermon, Parker was barred from the majority of Unitarian pulpits because a majority of Unitarian lay people and clergy found his ideas to be non-Christian. He continued his speaking engagements and became more and more controversial. In 1845, his followers, known as Parker-ites, established the Twenty-Eighth Congregational Society ( Boston ) and Parker became the pastor of this church. He was also a major figure in the abolitionist movement, leading the Boston opposition to the Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, and serving as minister-at-large to fugitive slaves in Boston . He was also the chairman of the executive committee of the Vigilance Committee, a fugitive slave aid society. Parker 's aid to fugitive slaves led to a federal indictment in 1854 which was dismissed on a technicality in 1855 . Parker was also a proponent of women's suffrage and delivered a well-known sermon, " On the Public Function of Woman," in 1853 . He served as the editor of the Massachusetts Quarterly Review from 1848 to 1851, and published many works, including Theism, Atheism, and the Popular Theology ( 1853 ), A False and True Revival of Religion ( 1858 ), and The Revival of Religion Which We Need ( 1858 ). He died in 1860 and was buried in Florence, Italy .
