Overview

Zion in the Courts: A Legal History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, 1830-1900 by Edwin Brown Firmage, R Collin Mangrum

The Mormon commitment to the creation of Zion-the Kingdom of God on Earth-decisively influenced Mormon legal conflicts with the state. In this first legal history of the Mormon experience, Firmage and Mangrum draw upon a broad range of church documents and archival materials to provide a comprehensive overview of a unique religious minority's encounters with the law and legal institutions.
