The Christian Examiner was founded as the Christian Disciple in Boston in 1813, changing to the name by which it became well-known in 1824. Like the Disciple, the Examiner promoted "spiritual and moral improvement", focused mainly on religious topics, and included some book reivews, religious news, and poetry. In 1857 Frederick H. Hedge and Edward Eeverett Hale took charge; this was a turning-point in the magazine's history, representing a triumph of more liberal ideas in New England Unitarianism, and the complete surrender of the Examiner to transcendentalism. The Examiner is one of the most important of the American religious reviews for several reasons: it was a tower of stringth for Unitarians, defending the Unitarian point of view for more than half a century and waging war against the Spirit of the Pilgrims, an anti-Unitarian magazine; it did distinctive work in literary criticism; and it commented on social, philosophical, and educational problems. Its scope was broad; history, biography, theology and even political discussions were given space in it.
Editors: Jan. 1844-May 1849, Alvan Lamson and Ezra S. Gannett; July 1849-May 1857, George Putnam and G.E. Ellis.
