The historical significance of the Mormons was its success in gaining adherents in the nineteenth century, its birth was centered around a man named Joseph smith, who discovered the book of Mormonism. Mormonism provided a new kind of economic security and cooperation to struggling and isolated families in the northeast and Midwest. However, they condoned all other forms of Christianity as false religions and seemed mysterious and cloaked and secrecy to outsiders. The Mormon Reformation was a period of renewed emphasis on spirituality within the church of Jesus Christ. It took place under the direction of Brigham Young and Jedediah Grant, who inspired their followers to reject sin and turn towards spiritual things. As a result all active Latter-day-Saint church members were re baptized as a symbol of their commitment, in addition to an increase in practical and emotional unity among church members. The long term effect of the Mormon Reformation was a renewed practice of marital pluralism and greater piousness.
