The Religious Affiliation of
Eliza R. Snow
influential poet, hymn writer and
early leader in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Eliza R. Snow: From Eliza R. Snow biography: "In 1828, twenty-four year old Eliza joined Alexander Campbell's Christian primitivist movement, and would later join Mormonism." When Snow joined Alexander Campbell's fledgling Resoration movement in 1828 it was known as the "Disciples of Christ," although the name "Christian Church" was also used. Both of these names were combined in 1968 so the denomination was known as "The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ)." Members are sometimes referred to as "Campbellites" or "Stone-Campbellites". Snow joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in 1835.
