Hosea Ballou (1771–1852) was an American Universalist writer from New Hampshire. He has often been called the “father of Universalism,” as his writings and theologies were most influential in helping distinguish Universalism from any other denomination. He founded and edited The Universalist Magazine and The Universalist Expositor and wrote thousands of sermons, essays, and hymns. He was self-educated, devoted his life to ministry from a young age, and was also a high-ranking freemason. His A Treatise on Atonement is one of the most influential Universalist writings of the nineteenth century.
