Jaume de Marcos
Contributor

Jaume de Marcos Jaume de Marcos Andreu was born June 25, 1961, in Barcelona, Spain. He graduated in Anglo-Germanic Philology from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB) in 1987. Since then he has worked as a free-lance translator, specializing mainly in software and fiction. Since 1990 he has also been a software localization tester for the Spanish versions of computer programs and travels frequently to the USA and Canada.

Raised a Catholic, in his twenties he started a spiritual journey looking for a new religious home. In 1989 he discovered Unitarian Universalism quite by chance while looking for information in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. He quickly joined the Church of the Larger Fellowship (CLF) and became quite active in the European Unitarian Universalists (EUU), attending several religious retreats in Central Europe. In 1992 he was one of the founding members in Spain of the New Age Universalist Movement (Movimiento Universalista Nueva Era - MUNE), a liberal non-denominational group that fostered interfaith dialogue and religious freedom. In 1996 and 1998 he participated in UU Leadership Seminars sponsored by the International Council of Unitarians and Universalists (ICUU) in Klingberg and Frankfurt, Germany. In 2000 he started the Unitarian Universalist Society of Spain (Sociedad Unitaria Universalista de España - SUUE), which was admitted as a member of the ICUU in May, 2001. SUUE has applied for formal recognition from the Spanish government as a religious organization, and is an active supporter of the interfaith movement in Spain. He is also coordinating the creation and development of Spanish-speaking Unitarian Universalist groups in Spain and Latin America, through the Spanish UU website (http://uuhispano.tripod.com) and two mailing lists in Spanish devoted to Unitarian Universalism.
