Ellen G. White and plagiarism
Question from Vicki on 5/31/2006:

I understand Ellen G. White plagiarized some of her writings. Do you know which ones they are and the official viewpoint of the SDA church?

Answer by Catholic Answers on 5/31/2006:

Vicki--

Ellen White has been accused of plagiarism and scholars favorable to White will admit that she "made use of literary sources in communicating her messages." Whether or not her literary borrowing constituted plagiarism is hotly debated by Seventh-Day Adventists and their critics.

To read both sides of the debate, please see the following sources:

Pro-White: Ellen G. White's Writings by the Ellen G. White Estate (scroll to "The Plagiarism Charge")

Anti-White: Ellen White's Plagiarism, collection of articles edited by EllenWhite.org
