Mūlāni is a Sanskrit word that means to take root. The Mūlāni Global U/U Special Collection at Meadville Lombard Theological School serves as the repository of materials that document the deep roots of Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalist (U/U) international communities. This special collection contains stories, correspondence, sermons, projects and any other materials that shed light on the past and inform future international endeavors.
This special collection is a resource for those people interested in the U/U international story as well as congregations and organizations looking to preserve their documents.
If you are interesting in donating documents that have arisen from the deep roots of Unitarian, Universalist, and Unitarian Universalist (U/U) international communities across the globe, please contact the archivist.
To use any of our physical collections listed below, please contact our archivist. In most cases, materials are only available for use on campus and in our reading room. In some cases, and within reason, we can scan selected material at your request and send you a high-quality scan of the item(s) you need. Because some of our materials are stored off-site, please contact the archivist at least two weeks before you need to use the materials.
