Biographical / Historical

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. Cobb was very active in politics and social reform issues and was a strong supporter of the anti-slavery movement, even serving two terms each in the Maine and Massachusetts legislatures. He died in Boston, Massachusetts, at the age of 68.
