The more things change...

...the more they stay the same.

This is really fascinating stuff--particularly so, because in the 1930s there was a survey taken of the student bodies on theological issues. They repeated the survey in the late 1960s-70s. Interestingly, the later survey reflected a much more "fundamentalist" mindset in relation to LDS doctrine. (This might play into my theory that at the time of Joseph Smith the Church was incredibly radical, and we have just been getting more stodgy as the years roll on.)
