The Book of Mormon is a sacred text of the Church of Latter Day Saints. It was
first published in March 1830 by Joseph Smith, Jr. as "The Book of Mormon: An
Account Written by the Hand of Mormon upon Plates Taken from the Plates of
Nephi." According to Smith's account and the book's narrative, the Book of
Mormon was originally written in otherwise unknown characters referred to as
"reformed Egyptian," engraved on golden plates.
Joseph Smith received these plates in 1827 from an angel named Moroni. Moroni
was the son of Mormon, a prophet born in 310 AD Central America. Mormon had
spent his life involved with warfare. His people, called the Nephites, defended
themselves against the Lamanites. In 385 AD the Lamanites defeated the Nephites
in one great, last battle.
Mormon was instructed by God to make a historical account of his people in
writing. His culture had many records engraved on thin gold or brass plates. He
used these as a reference and engraved his own narrative of the history of God's
dealings with his people on Earth.
By referring to many volumes of records, which were engraved upon thin gold or
brass plates, Mormon engraved his own narrative style history of the Lord's
dealings with His people in the New World. Before going to war with the
Lamanites for the final battle, Mormon gave his son Moroni the plates. Moroni
finished the book and became the last known survivor of the Nephite nation. The
plates were finished by Mornoni and buried, where they remained until Joseph
Smith was called upon to translate them into English.
