Okay…I am a bit confused about when and how polygyny was banned. I had been told two years ago that it was the Catholic Church that banned the practice in order to appease Roman officials.
I was told today that it was the early church fathers (during the period between Jesus and the start of the Roman Catholic Church) that first came out against polygyny. I was also told that the letter allegedly written by the Pope who banned polygyny (that many people have quoted from) is in fact fraudulent.
Can anyone shed some light on this ?
