Mormonism comprises the religious, institutional, and cultural elements of the early Latter Day Saint movement and its modern denominations deriving from the leadership of Brigham Young. Most specifically, Mormonism relates to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) and Mormon fundamentalism.[1] The term does not generally refer to other branches of the Latter Day Saint movement such as the Community of Christ. The term Mormonism derives from the Book of Mormon, one of the faith’s religious texts. Based on the name of that book, early followers of founder Joseph Smith, Jr. were called Mormons, and their faith was called Mormonism. The term was initially considered pejorative[2] but is no longer considered so.
