Early Mormonism and the Magic World View

New or Used: $47.95
During his apprenticeship to become a prophet (1820-30), Joseph Smith, Jr., learned from village mentors how to use a divining rod; a seer stone; a hat to shield his eyes in order to see hidden treasures; and amulets, incantations, and rituals to summon spirits. In this impressive study of Mormon origins and Christian mysticism, Quinn demonstrates how different from current norms early American religious practices could be.
