The Christian Examiner

The Christian Examiner was an American periodical published in the 19th century.

Founded in 1813 as The Christian Disciple, it was purchased in 1814 by Nathan Hale. His son Edward Everett Hale later oversaw publication.[1][2][3]

Through the years, editors included: William Ellery Channing; Noah Worcester; Henry Ware, Jr.; John Gorham Palfrey; Francis Jenks, and others.

Ralph Waldo Emerson's first printed work, "Thoughts on the Religion of the Middle Ages," signed "H.O.N.," was published in The Christian Disciple in 1822.[4]

An important journal of liberal Christianity, it was influential in the Unitarian and Transcendentalist movements.[5]
