Mormon Studies Library Collection
UVA's Mormon Studies Collection
With the gift of the Gregory A. Prince Collection in 2021 and future acquisitions already underway, UVA has emerged as a leading site for the study of Mormonism outside of Salt Lake City. We have an extensive research collection with over 11,000 books and other printed materials, as well as audio recordings, images, and artifacts.
“Mormonism is a fantastic arena in which to study so many topics of historical and theoretical interest to scholars of religion, precisely because it is a modern new religion and so well-documented.”
Matthew Hedstrom, Associate Professor
UVA Department of Religious Studies
About the Prince Collection
Gregory Prince, a sixth-generation Mormon from Los Angeles, began building his collection more than 50 years ago. His collection, specializing in 20th century LDS history, is widely recognized as one of the finest private collections in the world with treasures that include official church manuals, President David O. McKay’s journals, as well as 19th and 20th century anti-Mormon materials.
