The Egyptian Papyri

The Church purchased four mummies from Michael Chandler.  The papyri that the Prophet Joseph Smith translated were with the mummies.  (click on the images below to enlarge them)

The Church acquired 11 fragments from the papyri in 1967
 These fragments fit into larger scrolls.

As a boy President Joseph F. Smith saw one of the scrolls in the Mansion House where the Prophet and his wife lived.
