Harris, Luke

Harris, Luke, founder of the “Brotherhood of the New Life,” born in Buckinghamshire, a spiritualistic Socialist; his system founded on Swedenborgianism (q.v.) on the one hand and a form of communism on the other, with a scriptural Christianity spiritualised as backbone; the destiny of man he regards as angelhood, or a state of existence like that of God, in which the unity of sex, or fatherhood and motherhood, meet in one; the late Laurence Oliphant and the late John Pulsford were among his disciples; b. 1823.
