Abstract

Did a "magic world view" influence Joseph Smith and the coming forth of the Book of Mormon? The Prophet never denied having once participated in folk practices during his youth, but, as this KnoWhy explores, claims that he was fundamentally influenced by "magical" beliefs is a misleadingly simplistic approach to a very complex topic.
