The Joseph Smith Foundation Wiki features hundreds of well-documented articles based in primary sources and original documents. Additionally, each entry incorporates audiobooks, e-books, video clips, flash animations and other rich media content from locations across the Internet. The free, web-based Joseph Smith Foundation Wiki differs from the open source “Wikipedia” in that it all material is carefully scrutinized to ensure that it is based in verifiable, reliable sources. We also focus on inspirational, character-building history, as opposed to trivial and inconsequential facts.



The Joseph Smith Foundation Papers project is a compilation of scholarly religious literature covering a broad array of topics including Latter-day Saint history, science, religion, doctrine, and theology, language, literature, philosophy, education, family function, world history, culture and more. Each publication is well-documented, based on original documents and primary sources, and provides readers with faith-promoting scholarship and studies related to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. All material is freely available to the public.



Film and other forms of media can be utilized as a powerful tool for education. Movies have been demonstrated to effectively enhance comprehension, develop critical thinking skills, provoke stimulating discussion and make learning come alive! Through Joseph Smith Foundation’s “ZionTube”, we have compiled the best-known, uplifting videos, organized them by category and made them searchable from one site. Explore this movie database to study history, science, literature, culture, current issues, doctrine, and more in a way you will likely never forget.

The Joseph Smith Foundation “FAQs” is a helpful research database to find the teachings of past and present leaders of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and even those of other religious faiths, often ask, “What has a leader of the Church of Jesus Christ taught on science, politics, education, philosophy and other pertinent topics?” The Joseph Smith Foundation has compiled statements from Presidents of the Church and scripture and published them in an “FAQ” format. Great care has been taken to assure that very little commentary has been added. When the commentary is provided, it is set off with blue text to ensure that the reader can easily distinguish between scholarly commentary from the Joseph Smith Foundation team and the words of Church leaders and scripture.
