Abstract:

Date original:1981; 1982; 1983; 1984

The Mormon historians and historiography collection (1981-1984) consists of copies of articles written by Mormon historians debating whether or not written Mormon history should be faith-promoting or objective.; In 1981, Boyd K. Packer, an official of the LDS Church, and Louis C. Midgley, a professor of history at Brigham Young University, gave separate talks in which they asserted that Mormon historians should write only faith promoting history. This collection contains transcripts of these talks as well as correspondence and articles by several professional historians opposing this position and declaring that it is possible to write scholarly history about the Mormon Church without being anti-Mormon.; Correspondence and Articles; Correspondence; Davis Bitton, "Mormon Historiography: Response to a Caricature"; James L.
