At the outset, Mormon men and women have been purposefully dispatched to such universities to "gather the world's wisdom to Zion." Simpson, drawing on unpublished diaries, between different fabrics, indicates how LDS scholars normally defined American universities as egalitarian areas that fostered a individually transformative experience of freedom to discover provisional reconciliations of Mormon and American identities and non secular and clinical views. On campus, Simpson argues, Mormon separatism died and a brand new, smooth Mormonism used to be born: a Mormonism at domestic within the usa yet at odds with itself. Fierce battles between Mormon students and church leaders ensued over medical notion, progressivism, and the historicity of Mormonism's sacred earlier. The scars and controversy, Simpson concludes, linger.
