Text of statute as originally enacted

The Doctrine of the Trinity Act 1813 (53 Geo. 3 c. 160. sometimes called the Trinitarian Act 1812) was an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom which amended its blasphemy laws and granted toleration for Unitarian worship.[2]

The Act was also variously known as the 'Unitarian Relief Act (Trinity Act)', 'The Unitarian Toleration Bill', and 'Mr William Smith's Bill' (after Whig politician William Smith).[3] The Dissenters (Ireland) Act 1817 (57 Geo. 3 c. 70) extended the Doctrine of the Trinity Act 1813 to Ireland, and amended the Prohibition of Disturbance of Worship Act 1719 (passed by the Parliament of Ireland)[4] in the same way as the 1813 act had amended the 1689 act.[5]

The Doctrine of the Trinity Act 1813 was repealed by the Statute Law Revision Act 1873.[6]
