It seems that many visitors to the disputed Mormon texts archives have greatly misunderstood the purpose of the archives. Taking the time to read the site's disclaimer and the following introductory paragraph before replying to items attached to this page should lessen such problems.

This is the master page for the disputed Mormon texts archives. This is a depository for various texts that some have claimed are authentic Mormon texts and others claim are not; in some cases there are responses to the various claims of authenticity as well. By placing a text here i am not claiming either that it is authentic or not; i may have my own opinions on the matter, but in my attempt to keep this page as neutral as possible i am not placing my own opinions here, although i have noted cases in which people have claimed directly to me that they have seen these documents themselves. If you have any questions about a specific text or response, or if you are curious what my opinion on a text is, or if you have any other comments or have a text you wish to add or respond to, feel free to e-mail me on the subject; before sending e-mail you may wish to read the disclaimer for this site; it explains a bit about the philosophy of this site and what i consider evidence for a text's authenticity. Please include "WWW" somewhere in the subject line, though--i subscribe to quite a few e-mail mailing lists and sometimes perform mass deletions, and i wouldn't want your message to get lost in the shuffle.

Note that the nature of this sort of thing is that new texts will continually crop up and that responses to these texts will continually be added. Feel free to visit this page again to see the new additions.

And here they are, in roughly chronological order by the date they are claimed to have been written/translated, along with a few notes on the responses i have received regarding the authenticity of the texts (including notes on which texts have been verified). Note that certain items, including some claiming to be from the General handbook of instructions, have been removed as either being overly easy to verify as authentic or not, or for being a small part of a large whole that is easily available elsewhere.
