Book of Memoirs

BOOK OF MEMOIRS

The last of the books of the journey part of Through Minds’ Eyes is the Book of Memoirs. In recent years, the question of the authorship of Memoirs is seen to be more complex. While some still maintain unity of authorship, others prefer to speak of the influence of a guiding spirit to write the majority of the book bringing together many stories. The treatment of Memoirs as a single book by the earliest editors was undoubtedly due to the fact that the two books are under one name.

In the present state of the text, there are several dislocations of large sections so that the chronological or logical sequence is disrupted. The major instance is the public reading of the law; others will be pointed out later.

There are two distinct memoirs in this series. The author was a descendant of the priestly class. This was the accepted way of establishing the legality of one’s priestly office. He is also called a scribe, well-versed in the law of the Divine, indicating the author’s dedication to it, which he sought to make the basic rule of life in the restored community. It was in religious and cultic reform rather than in political affairs that he made his mark as a leader. Tradition holds him in great esteem. He is sometimes accused of having been a legalist who gave excessive attention to the letter of the law. His work, however, should be seen and judged within a specific context. He gave to his people a cohesion and spiritual unity which helped to prevent the disintegration of the small community settled in the wilderness. Had it not been for the intransigence of him and of those who adopted his ideal, it is doubtful that these ideas would have survived today. He set the tone of the community, and it was characterized by fidelity to the writings, the authentic way of life. It is in this light that we can judge most fairly the work of Memoirs during the Restoration.
