Selection committee chairman Thomas G. Alexander said Quinn’s 1987 book “Early Mormonism and the Magic World View” was “a prize-winning, imaginative and path-breaking study of the relationship between traditional folk magic and early Mormonism.”
“Quinn’s book laid out … the arguments tying Mormonism to the hermetic tradition.
“Two biographies of President J. Reuben Clark … offer well-considered insights into the life of an extraordinary leader of the LDS. Church.”
Alexander said three of Quinn’s books on the Mormon hierarchy “are meticulous studies of the business, cultural and familial relationships of church leadership.”
“Although a controversy surrounded ‘Same Sex Dynamics among 19th Century Americans: A Mormon Example,’ the book broke new ground in Mormon studies,” Alexander said.
What that means is that Joseph was having sex with Sylvina (so that she would think that Joseph could be Josephine's daughter) during a time when she was ALSO having sex with her then husband Lyon (so that he could actually be the father). This pretty much blows out of the water the theory that Joseph didn't practice ongoing polyamory, but instead only took women who had ended their physical relationships with their legal husbands. Here we have pretty concrete evidence that he had sex with a woman who was still having an ongoing sexual relationship with her legal husband.
