9780842527828: Zion's Trumpet: 1850 Welsh Mormon Periodical

The epic story of the early Welsh Mormons was virtually unknown until Ron Dennis personally mastered nineteenthcentury Welsh a major challenge even for a gifted linguist. After writing landmark books on Welsh immigration and literature, he focused for a dozen years on producing facsimile translations, or reproductions of early Welsh missionary texts and volumes of official Welsh Mormon periodicals produced during the great harvest of converts from that land. Virtually alone in this field of study, Dennis continues to work to preserve the full story of how the early preaching of the restored gospel inspired both fiery debate and heroic sacrifice among the people of Wales. This volume, which focuses on documents published in 1850, is another important chapter in this saga, part of Dennis s continuing efforts to translate all early Welsh Mormon literature.
