The ritualization of Mormon history, and other essays by Davis Bitton ( Book )
3 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bitton not only presents the Mormon case for polygamy but places it in the context of nineteenth-century American political-social rhetoric. He narrates and analyzes the stormy case of B.H. Roberts, who was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives but was refused his seat because of polygamy. His exploration of the life of Brigham Young, Jr., relies on his subject's unpublished journals and finds this namesake of a famous father a fascinating example of the transition from the nineteenth to the twentieth century. In the title essay, Bitton shows how Mormons have simplified and memorialized their history in monuments, parades, pageants, and print. He also considers whether Mormons, in ritualizing their own history, are doing what all Americans do
