Revelations received by Joseph Smith, Jr., the founding prophet of Mormonism, from the 1820s to the 1840s. Various editions have been published by different groups that follow Joseph Smith's teachings, and may include different revelations, section ordering, textual changes, and editorial practices.
Though it was first published in 1835, the Doctrine and Covenants is largely based on an earlier collection of Joseph Smith's revelations found in the Book of Commandments (1833), an incomplete book whose printing was interrupted by mob violence in Independence, Missouri.
