Volume 61:4 (2022) Print
The Book of Abraham is considered holy scripture by Latter-day Saints. Scholars have explored the book from various perspectives and have made compelling arguments for its authenticity. This issue of BYU Studies is designed to introduce Latter-day Saints to the Book of Abraham from an academic perspective and provide a reliable guide that can be used to understand it better. The issue is divided into three sections. The first section provides an overview of the coming forth and translation of the Book of Abraham in the nineteenth century. The second section provides an ancient context for the Book of Abraham. The third and final section looks at the facsimiles and focuses on the more noteworthy instances where Joseph Smith’s interpretations converge with modern Egyptological knowledge.
