Urantia Brotherhood Association

URANTIA Brotherhood Association

The URANTIA Brotherhood Association was founded in 1989 to continue the work of the URANTIA Brotherhood, founded in 1955. That year people attracted to the teachings of The URANTIA Book, a large volume of channeled material first published in 1955, organized to nurture their learning experience. Over the years the URANTIA Brotherhood formed a number of groups around the country. They operated in harmony with the URANTIA Foundation, the corporation established in 1950 to publish and hold the copyrights and trademarks associated with the book. However, in 1989 the brotherhood and the foundation had an irreconcilable disagreement, and the foundation withdrew the use of the name URANTIA and the associated symbols from the brotherhood. Committed to the book, the brotherhood reorganized as the Fifth Epochal Fellowship. Those students still in relation to the foundation organized a new structure, the URANTIA Brotherhood Association. It may be contacted at 529 W. Wrightwood Ave., Chicago, IL 60614. Website: http://urantiabook.org/.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
