Servetus in Arizona

Key quote: "The story of Michael Servetus and the development of Unitarian Universalism will be told in a series of videos, “Long Strange Trip,” by Ron Cordes set to begin Sunday at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Mountain Home, 401 E. Ninth St.
When John Calvin burned Servetus at the stake in 1553, he ignited the flame that ultimately led to the rise of theology long suppressed by the Council of Nicea. The theology Servetus championed was the forerunner of the rise of Unitarianism.
Servetus also was a scholar and physician who first recognized the path of blood in pulmonary circulation. The story of Servetus and the survival of what was thought to be the last copy of his book is told in “Out of the Flames” by Lawrence and Nancy Goldstone."
