In January 2020, a conference was held at the Huntington Library in San Marino, California, to commemorate the two hundredth anniversary of Joseph Smith’s First Vision. This issue presents the proceedings of that conference. Speakers from the Latter-day Saint faith and other faiths placed the First Vision within the larger context of American religious history and explored its historicity and theological ramifications. This issue includes three additional articles: on art of the First Vision; lectures notes of a Presbyterian minister in Palmyra, New York; and an article on Joseph Smith’s knowledge of deity’s tangible bodies. Poetry and book reviews round out this issue.
