Rev. Alicia McNary Forsey, Ph.D., is a visiting scholar to the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California, a parish minister, and Assistant Dean of Instruction for the Humanist Institute.

Dr. Forsey is responsible for the project that saved and made accessible the Earl Morse Wilbur Rare Book Collection which documents the intellectual history of Unitarianism. The books are in eight languages, date back to 1522 and number approximately 1,200 volumes.

Dr. Forsey also initiated the first continuing-education program, first website, and first online courses for a member seminary of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, California.

She is the Managing Editor of the first English translation of The Restoration of Christianity by Michael Servetus (1553), and has recently completed a book on the relationship between Sultan Süleyman of the Ottoman Empire and Transylvania during the rule of Queen Isabella Sforza Zapolya in the mid-1500’s. This book includes documentation from the Ottoman Archives in Turkey. This is the first documentation from primary resources of the influence of Islam on the early Unitarians (mid 1500’s) in Transylvania.

Dr. Forsey initiated and directed the Earl Morse Wilbur History Colloquia. Three of the five conferences held to date have resulted in publications. These include Regaining Historical Consciousness, In Their Own Words: A Conversation with Participants in the Black Empowerment Movement, and The Role of the Dissenter in Western Christianity: From Jesus Through the Reformation (click here).
