See the Appendix herein, infra notes —86 and accompanying text, for an overview of the shifting and confusing terminology.
While a few Western writers and rulers have allowed polygamy in rare individual cases of urgent personal, political, or social need, virtually all Western writers and legal systems have denounced polygamy as an alternative form of marriage and have denounced the occasional polygamous experiments of early Jewish aristocrats, 3See John Witte, Jr.
The historical sources commended monogamy on various grounds.This Blog deals with world and church trends and Bible prophecy so I would be remiss if I did not write something about the first Jesuit Pope ever to take the throne.
