NOTES ON THE JOSEPH SMITH PAPERS
Greetings
In this issue of the newsletter, we highlight recent critical praise that the Joseph Smith Papers Project has received, including a positive review of the project website in the Public Historian as well as complimentary comments from a prominent historian as part of a panel at this year’s virtual Mormon History Association annual conference.

We also feature an article by one of our historians that explores Joseph Smith’s views on other religions, their creeds, and religious pluralism.

Sincerely,
 
Matthew C. Godfrey, R. Eric Smith, Matthew J. Grow, and Ronald K. Esplin

Appelhans of the American Philosophical Society stated: “The lavish project website exemplifies the state-of-the-art of digital papers publication, satisfying both public and scholarly audiences alike.”

Creeds and Communing: Joseph Smith's Views on Other Religions
By Chase Kirkham, Volume Editor

One of the theological gems that will appear in Documents, Volume 15 is a 5 June 1844 letter from Joseph Smith to Pennsylvania historian Israel Daniel Rupp. Rupp had recently published a book about American religious denominations, He Pasa Ekklesia [The whole church], and devoted one of its forty-three chapters to Latter-day Saint history. Joseph Smith wrote a brief letter thanking Rupp for sending him a copy of his book. The letter reveals Smith’s attitude toward religious creeds and religious pluralism.
