A work by Joseph Smith, called The Book Of Abraham, was supposedly a "translation" of ancient Egyptian papyri. This took place before the discovery and deciphering of the Rosetta Stone. The papyri were later determined to be run of the mill funeral documents from the religion of Horus. In subsequent years, Smith's concoction has been shown by many Egyptologists not to be a translation at all, but a complete fabrication. In this clip from a BBC Documentary, Mormon Apostle Jeffrey Holland claims that Smith did actually translate papyri into "the word of god".
