REL 63 Mormonism
A survey of the history and theology of Mormonism, one of America’s indigenous religions. We’ll read selections from the Book of Mormon and chart the history of the movement, including its contentious relationship with the federal government. We’ll look, finally, at some of the cultural expressions of Mormonism and examine the ways that Mormonism has transformed itself from what was essentially an outlaw religion in the nineteenth century to the embodiment of American ideals. Open to all.
