RELIGION 435HC 1273 1 The Mormon Theological Tradition
The purpose of this course is to investigate the Mormon theological tradition with its familiar and its almost-forgotten writers and thinkers. We will examine the roots of contemporary doctrines as well as considering forgotten alternatives, repopulating the tradition with the key figures from this fading past. The contributions of both official church leaders and lay members will be included. A key emphasis of the course will be the heterogeneity of thought within the tradition, along with an examination of how current orthodoxies have been constructed and maintained.
