(1847–1907). Founder of the ‘Christian Catholic Apostolic Church in Zion’. An Australian Congregational minister, he moved to the USA in 1888 after a personal healing experience. There he established divine healing homes, and then in 1896 his own healing and adventist church in Chicago. A continuing community of several thousand includes some Navajo Indians, but the Church no longer rules Zion City as a theocracy.
