Personal revelation in Mormonism
Richardson, E. Jay
MetadataShow full item record
The doctrine of personal revelation is a vital part of Mormonism. Yet historians of Mormonism have not examined the history of the doctrine or its implications. As a result, I have written a history of the doctrine and shown its importance in Mormonism. In addition, I have examined why claims to the supernatural have not been adequately discussed by the New Mormon Historians and other historians. Employing the insights of the "Reformed Epistemologists," I have argued that claims to the supernatural ought to be critically analyzed in historical writings.
