The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of America’s fastest growing religions, and its influence circles the globe. The church has 13 million members today and over half of them live outside the U.S. Yet the birth of Mormonism and its history is one of America’s great neglected narratives. This four-hour, two-night event brings together FRONTLINE and AMERICAN EXPERIENCE in their first co-production, to provide a searching portrait of this fascinating but often misunderstood religion.

Episode I of The Mormons looks at the turbulent early history of the Mormon faith, from Joseph Smith’s astonishing visions and the creation of The Book of Mormon through the Mormons’ contentious and sometimes violent confrontations with their neighbors and the founding and ultimate abandonment of three major religious communities in Ohio, Missouri and Illinois.

Episode II of The Mormons looks at the contemporary realities of the Mormon church. Whitney explores the massive missionary program, how the church has entered the mainstream of American culture, the intricacies of Mormon theology and ritual, and the excommunication of those who challenge church doctrine or who do not follow its teachings.
