Tomb of Joseph Documentary - Available on DVD or Blu-ray
At the time of the construction of the original Nauvoo Temple, the prophet Joseph Smith, Jr., the founder of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, commissioned the construction of a tomb for his family.
We know this through historical records and design drawings of the tomb by William Weeks, the architect of the Nauvoo Temple.
Because Joseph was never buried there, the location of the tomb has been clouded through time. The documentary seeks to uncover the possibilities of various locations while delving into the history of the church around the period just before and after the martyrdom.
OUR COMMITMENT TO BE IN HARMONY WITH THE REVEALED NAME OF THE CHURCH:
President Russell M. Nelson of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints released the following statement regarding the name of the Church.
"The Lord has impressed upon my mind the importance of the name He has revealed for His Church, even The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. We have work before us to bring ourselves in harmony with His will."
The Nauvoo Gallery has been working to put our website and our gallery store in Nauvoo, Illinois in harmony with this important revelation. It’s been customary for websites like ours to use terms like LDS Art, LDS Temple Art, LDS pictures or Mormon Art when describing our products for Google and other search engines. Our intention has been to help people find what has been termed as LDS products & LDS Gifts. It took many many months to build and add products to this website using those relevant and popular search terms - please bear with us as we still find each instance where we can better be in harmony with President Nelson’s message. Thank you for your patience and your kindness during this process
