Topic: Mormonism and american culture
What is Mormonism? Is it Christian? What is the Book of Mormon? Why do Mormons build temples? Why don't Mormons drink coffee? Why did early Mormons experiment with polygamy but later reject it? In this course, we will learn the answers to these and many other questions. The class has no prerequisites and assumes no prior knowledge of the Mormon (Latter-day Saint) tradition. The goal is to give you a better understanding of the history, beliefs, and practices of America's most successful home-grown religious movement.
