Abstract

The origins of Mormonism can be better understood by looking at its historical context. The period between 1820 and 1845 was a time of political, social, economic, and religious revolution in America and has been termed "The Second Revolution." The author examines the general, religious, and socio-economic preparations the Second Revolution made for the spread of early Mormonism.
