This chapter examines the sources of the Mormon conflict. It suggests that neither social, economic, or political factors can be put forward as the central—or even a constant—factor in the long history of Mormon persecution. On the other hand, even when the theological dimensions of conflict are not decisive, they are inescapable and present a constant feature in anti-Mormon antagonisms.

Keywords:   mormon conflict, mormonism, religious persecution, anti-mormonism
