Roberts summarizes some of the work of Guizot regarding the relations between church and state. He classifies the Nephite Republic as most closely resembling one in which the church and state were distinct societies. He provides examples from the text to demonstrate this. He then summarizes the events of the Amlicite Revolt, the first severe trial the new republic faced, five years into its existence.
