The First Vision of Joseph Smith, Jr.: 200 Years On

Jan. 24, 2020

Rooted in The Huntington's substantial collection of Mormon history materials, this conference commemorates the 200th anniversary of Joseph Smith's proclaimed First Vision experience. Speakers analyze the various accounts of Smith's theophany and assess what it has come to mean both to the Latter-day Saints and to the larger religious community generally. The program also positions Smith's claim to visions and revelations within the larger context of American religious history; explores its historicity and theological ramifications; and illuminates what remains, even at two centuries' distance, a contested moment in American history.
