As this critical, independent history, which ends with the
ordination of one of the first women bishops in the nation, shows,
Utah Episcopalians have had, despite small numbers, a remarkably
eventful and significant history, which included complex relations
with Mormons and Native Americans, early experience of women and
homosexuals in the ministry, and a fascinating set of bishops.
Among the latter were Daniel Tuttle, a leading figure in Episcopal
history; Christian socialist and Social Gospel proponent Frank
Spencer Spalding; and Paul Jones, forced to resign because of his
pacifism during WWI.
Frederick Quinn, an Episcopal priest and historian, is adjunct
professor of history at Utah State University and adjunct professor
of political science at the University of Utah. His previous books
include Democracy at Dawn, Notes From Poland and Points East, a TLS
International Book of the Year, and African Saints, Martyrs, and
Holy People, a Black Catholic Congress Book of the Month. A former
chaplain at Washington National Cathedral, he holds a doctorate in
history from the University of California at Los Angeles.
