The Book of Mormon is a sacred text that was published in March 1830 by Joseph Smith, Jr. According to Smith, the book is originally written in an otherwise unknown language called “reformed Egyptian” on golden plates and it should be of similar importance as the Bible. Smith said he has received these plates in 1827 from an angel named Moroni, who identified himself to Smith as a Native American, which wrote a part of the book for over a thousand years ago. According to Smith this ancient Moroni buried the plates in a hill near Smith’s home in Manchester, New York.
