History

Dr. James Martineau (21 April 1805 - 11 January 1900) was an English religious philosopher influential in the history of Unitarianism.

For 45 years he was Professor of Mental and Moral Philosophy and Political Economy in Manchester New College, the principal training college for British Unitarianism. His portrait, painted by George Frederick Watts is held at London's National Portrait Gallery, which also holds written correspondence between Martineau and Poet Laureate, Alfred, Lord Tennyson - who records that he "regarded Martineau as the master mind of all the remarkable company with whom he engaged". Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone said of Martineau; "he is beyond question the greatest of living thinkers".
