Writings of Madame Lydia Mountford
Data Set Description Summary
Madame Mountford was born in Jerusalem in 1848. Her parents were of “noble Russian birth” and had non-sectarian Christian beliefs. Lydia came to Salt Lake City “and gave a lecture, which was heard by Dr. James E. Talmage, who was president of the Latter-day Saints University at the time. He was so impressed with the wonder and beauty of her work that arrangements were made for her to deliver her series of lectures in the Tabernacle. Her lectures took up phases of the Savior’s life.

1. Jesus Christ in His Homeland, and
2. The King of the Shepherds and His Psalm.
