About This Quiz

How many Mormons do you know or have you met? Even if you do not personally know even one member of the Mormon faith, you have probably heard a bit about their history and religious practices. But do you think you know enough about Mormons and their history to ace this quiz? Give it a try to find out how much you know.

Every religion has had a start somewhere. The history of the Church of Latter Day Saints began in the United States in the early 19th century. As followers of a relatively new religion, Mormons have had to deal with a great deal of bias and discrimination. The Church has been at war with the people of the United States, worked to integrate into mainstream society, and then closed ranks again to protect their tradition of religious and cultural teachings.

This quiz is all about Mormon history, and it's going to take a bit of real knowledge for you to get even half of these 35 questions right. Just in case, you might want to brush up on your Mormon history, but if you think you know enough to get a passing score on this quiz, let's get started.
