As the tenants and structure of Moromonism took shape in the 1800s church members and leadership worked toward an understanding of the role glossolalia — the practice of speaking in tongues, would have within the young church. Jeremy Lofthouse explores how the practice was accepted, tolerated and eventually disabused by church leaders through an investigation of both the role it played for leadership and for congregation members.
