Many people around the world aren't terribly familiar with the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, which was founded in 1830. In this insightful and probing documentary, Frontline looks into the world of the Mormon Church by talking to current church leaders, as well as dissident exiles, historians, and scholars. Visitors to the site can watch the entire four-hour program online, and then move on to their helpful FAQ section and interactive timeline. The "Themes" area is a real gem, and visitors can move through different themes, including "The Mormon Faith", "Polygamy", and "The Mormon Missionaries". Within each section they can read pieces on each subject offered by members of the Mormon Church, along with those of leading writers and historians. Finally, the site also includes a collection of relevant links and suggested readings.
