The Last Man Jailed for Blasphemy

Author Stephan Pappa states in his book ‘The Last Man Jailed for Blasphemy’ that Abner Kneeland, the Universalist minister, “was once famous, infamous, rather, but he has been lost to history; most people including Unitarian Universalists don’t know about him and should.” Linda Kneeland is Abner’s great-great granddaughter and she will tell us much more about her famous/infamous ancestor.
