Bicknell Young - a Mormon and Christian Science story

From Seekers & Scholars 

Listen to a fascinating seeker story: the life of Bicknell Young, who grew up in a prominent Mormon family of the mid-1800s. He traveled a road from life among the first settlers of Salt Lake City to a career in service to The Mother Church in Boston.

The Library’s Executive Manager, Mike Hamilton, sits down with Kristine Haglund, a distinguished Mormon scholar, to discuss the relevance of Young’s upbringing, including the connection to his uncle Brigham Young, leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. How did this shape an artistic and spiritual journey that led him to embrace Christian Science? Our guests also discuss the significance of music in Mormon culture and explore how it contributed to Young’s early singing career and marriage to the Italian composer and musician Elisa Mazzucato Young.
