The Ritualization of Mormon History and Other Essays

by

How did the Latter-day Saints of the 19th century defend their plural marriage system? What kind of poetry was written on the Mormon frontier, and what social function did it perform? In a collection intended to convey the excitement and variety of Mormon history, Bitton considers these and other issues, and demonstrates how a religious group survives and maintains its sense of identity in the face of change and adaptation to new circumstances.
