The difference between Egyptologists’ translation and Joseph Smith’s interpretations has caused considerable controversy. The Book of Abraham is a work produced in 1835 by Joseph Smith based, he said, on Egyptian papyri purchased from a traveling mummy exhibition. The Book of Abraham papyri were thought to have been lost in the 1871 Great Chicago Fire.
However, in 1966 several fragments of the papyri were found in the archives of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and in the LDS Church archives. The Book of Abraham was purportedly translated by Joseph Smith from Egyptian papyri. Eleven mummies and several papyri were discovered near the ancient Egyptian city of Thebes by Antonio Lebolo between 1818 and 1822. Following Lebolo’s death in 1830, the mummies and assorted objects were sent to New York with instructions that they should be sold in order to benefit the bereft heirs of Lebolo. On June 30, 1835, Chandler exhibited his collection in Kirtland, Ohio.
