Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

(1758–1837), nephew of Joseph E. Worcester, was a New Hampshire clergyman and editor. His Bible News … (1810) and Respectful Address … (1811) are essentially Unitarian and led him to desert the Congregational Church to become the editor of The Christian Disciple (1813). From Unitarianism he developed an interest in pacifism, becoming the secretary of the Massachusetts Peace Society (1815–28), editor of The Friend of Peace (1819–28), and, under the pseudonym Philo Pacificus, author of A Solemn Review of the Custom of War (1814) and other popular pacifist works.
