Abstract

Miller discusses the claims made by Book of Mormon critics that the appearance of linen and silk in the record is anachronistic, and that these didn't exist in the Americas prior to Columbus. He summarizes several proposals to address this, such as the importation of flax by the Lehites or Jaredites or the use of materials native to the Americas to produce a similar result.
