Hello. I have seen the movie “how rare a possession” about the italian priest Vincenzo Di Francesca who found a copy of the Book of Mormon, but for many years never could find out what book it was since the cover was damaged and the titel page missing?
It took him 20 years to find out. I find this very strange, because he found it in America and lived there later on too, he could have just asked people around, im sure there must have been people who would recognize it? Or why didnt he just go to the library and look in a dictionary?
He eventually found out when he accidently stumbled upon the word “mormon” in a dictionary, 20 years after he found the book. Why didnt he check it up sooner? How hard can it be? Even if the title page was missing, he had a whole lot of names from the witnesses and Joseph Smith and NEphi, etc to look up?
