The study of apostasy provides researchers with a great deal of information regarding the multidimensional characteristics of conflict. Intragroup conflict manifests through tensions arising between individual identity development and the group’s collective identity and purpose. Additionally, the social phenomenon of apostasy reveals intricate, dynamic, and distinct processes of intrapersonal conflict where the apostate struggles with psychological and cognitive disconnects they sense and experience in relation to the group. Female apostates, who have abandoned the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints (FLDS), are the central focus of this study. Through a narrative analytical approach of their published memoirs, conflict scholars, as well as other social scientists, can obtain a deeper understanding of the social processes facing individuals who dissent from their primary identity group. The results of this study reveal strong overarching correlations between each apostate narrative, producing an emergent theory that can be used to further comprehend the complexities of conflicts surrounding apostasy.
