The Evolution Of The Doctrine And Covenants Text A Preliminary And Exploratory Study

This study uses methodologies developed in the biological sciences to evaluate the development of the D&C printed text. Phylogenetic patterns of a small number of individual sections common in both RLDS/COC and LDS editions will be analyzed. Insights and comparisons between these two textual groups will be presented. These two groups will be distinguished from early 19th century editions, from which they are both descended.
