Abstract

This is a five-part series that includes a brief overview of the Book of Mormon, an account of Spanish conquerors who destroyed evidence of Hebrew influence reasoning that “Satan had counterfeited in this people the history, manners, customs, traditions, and expectations of the Hebrews,” a description of artifacts containing Hebrew characters, and evidence that the religious traditions of the Indians corroborate Book of Mormon statements. The second part discusses the language the plates were written in.
