Abstract: Sermons of Universalist minister, Sylvanus Cobb. The sermons span 1830-1837.
Sylvanus Cobb (1798-1866) was ordained as a Universalist minister in Winthrop, Maine, in 1821. He held ministerial positions throughout Maine and Massachusetts and founded the Universalist newspaper The Christian Freeman and Family Visiter in 1839 in Waltham, Massachusetts. He also authored Compend of Divinity in 1846, a compilation of Universalist doctrine and beliefs, and New Testament of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ: with explanatory notes and practical observations in 1864.

He died in Boston, Massachusetts, at the age of 68.
