Mormon women's history : beyond biography( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mormon Women's History: Beyond Biography demonstrates that the history and experience of Mormon women is central to the history of Mormonism and to histories of American religion, politics, and culture. Yet the study of Mormon women has mostly been confined to biographies, family histories, and women's periodicals. The contributors to Mormon Women's History engage the vast breadth of sources left by Mormon women-journals, diaries, letters, family histories, and periodicals, as well as art, poetry, material culture, theological treatises, and genealogical records-to read between the lines, reconstruct connections, recover voices, reveal meanings, and recast stories. Mormon Women's History presents women as incredibly interconnected. Familial ties of kinship are multiplied and stretched through the practice and memory of polygamy, social ties of community are overlaid with ancestral ethnic connections and local congregational assignments, and fictive ties are woven through shared interests and collective memories of violence and trauma. Conversion to a new faith community unites and exposes the differences among Native Americans, Yankees, and Scandinavians. Lived experiences of marriage, motherhood, death, mourning, and widowhood are played out within contexts of expulsion and exile, rape and violence, transnational immigration, establishing "civilization" in a wilderness, and missionizing both to new neighbors and to faraway peoples. Gender defines, limits, and opens opportunities for private expression, public discourse, and popular culture. Cultural prejudices collide with doctrinal imperatives against backdrops of changing social norms, emerging professional identities, and developing ritualization and sacralization of lived religion. The stories, experiences, and examples explored in Mormon Women's History are neither comprehensive nor conclusive, but rather suggestive of the ways that Mormon women's history can move beyond individual lives to enhance and inform larger historical narratives.

Family life in England and America, 1690-1820 by Rachel Cope( Book )

17 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and held by 94 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By studying the family we can increase our understanding of everything from democracy and capitalism to, race, gender, class, violence, religion and death. Recent scholarship has gone beyond demographic study and narrow definitions of the family to consider kinship more widely. Yet a great deal of the material that can help our understanding remains buried and untapped in a variety of remote archives. This four-volume collection of newly transcribed manuscript material brings together sources from both sides of the Atlantic and from a wide variety of regional archives. It is the first collection of its kind, allowing comparisons between the development of the family in England and America during a time of significant change. The volumes are arranged thematically to assist in these comparisons and cover a wide variety of family units. The first volume helps to define the family and covers class, ethnic, racial and religious diversity. The second volume follows the creation of the family and the final two volumes look at how families maintained and perpetuated themselves. This collection will be of interest to all those who research and teach histories of the eighteenth century, the family, women, gender and childhood

How and what you worship : Christology and praxis in the revelations of Joseph Smith by Sperry Symposium( Book )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Section 93 of the Doctrine and Covenants deals with concepts that scholars term Christology and praxis. Christology has to do with the study of Christ's nature, while praxis involves religious practice. That this revelation should insist on the both the "how" and the "what" of worship indicates that knowledge and practice are inseparable. As this volume demonstrates, Joseph Smith's revelations and teachings constitute a unique textual setting to analyze this relationship"--

How and what you worship : The 49th annual Brigham Young University Sidney B. Sperry symposium. by Rachel Cope( )

1 edition published in 2020 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Section 93 of the Doctrine and Covenants deals with concepts that scholars term Christology and praxis . Christology has to do with the study of Christ's nature, while praxis involves religious practice. That this revelation should insist on both the how and the what of worship indicates that knowledge and practice are inseparable. As this volume demonstrates, Joseph Smith's revelations and teachings constitute a unique textual setting to analyze this relationship. This book focuses on both the person of Christ and the practice of worshipping him as outlined in the revelations of Joseph Smith. More specifically, it helps readers understand Christ as revealed to Joseph Smith and clarifies the practices required of those who worship a being who grew "from grace to grace."
