Reincarnation In Mormonism Reincarnation has never been a wholly orthodox nor well- publicized facet of Mormon theology, yet it has a long history in the tradition. It has been taught and believed by a surprisingly large number of people in LDS society, including general authorities. Although never popular, some varieties of reincarnation have proven more heretical than others, and Church leaders have often given mixed messages on the subject. By the end of the nineteenth century, however, it had gained its modern association with schismatics and fundamentalists. This presentation outlines the historical development of reincarnation belief in Mormonism.
