Overview

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is one of America's fastest-growing religions and, relative to its size, one of the richest. Church membership, now at 12 million and growing, sweeps the globe. But from the moment of its founding in 1830, the church has been controversial. In the early years Mormons were hated, ridiculed, persecuted, and feared. Yet in the past several decades the Mormon Church has transformed itself from a fringe sect into a thriving religion that embraces mainstream American values; its members include prominent and powerful politicians, university presidents, and corporate leaders. This revealing American Experience-Frontline co-production from PBS digs deep into the Mormon past to understand the church today. With unprecedented access to church archives and the cooperation of church leadership, this documentary offers a more complex portrait of Mormonism than ever before. The Mormons aired on PBS on April 30 and May 1, 2007.
