Abstract

This series presents historical evidences to prove the divine authenticity of the Book of Mormon. Thatcher quotes from the Popol Vuh to show that the Quiche’s creation account is similar to that of the Bible; he also refers to the Works of Ixtlilxochitl to argue that the accounts of the flood are similar. The second part continues to compare the Popol Vuh with the Bible.
