The Mormons, or Latter Day Saint Movement, refers to some independent Christian Churches based on the teachings of Joseph Smith, born in 1805 in Vermont (the United States), who initiated the so-called “Restoration” of the old church of Christ.

The Mormons are not considered Protestants.

According to the Mormons, the Christian Church after Christ's death, entered into a period called by them “the great apostasy,” in which the truths of the Gospel were lost.

  1. The “Book of Mormon”, collecting all these illuminations, was published in 1830
