Description

What was the world like in 1820? Written to commemorate the bicentennial of the First Vision, this new book introduces the vision and the Restoration of the gospel within a global setting. Seeking to capture the qualities and essential meanings of the age, Richard Bennett explores what he calls the "four dominant constellations in the skies of early nineteenth-century history"—namely, revolution and reform, Romanticism, emancipation and independence, and religious revivalism.

From Napoleon to Beethoven to Bolívar, 1820: Dawning of the Restoration is a biographical examination of "the year of our Lord 1820" as it broke upon a weary world that was cautiously seeking new hopes, new dreams, and bold new visions—including Joseph Smith's.
