In the April 2020 Sunday Morning session of the General Conference of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, President Russell M. Nelson, before reading what would become the sixth Proclamation to the World, stated there had been only five proclamations before it.1
I am finding conflicting reports about what those five proclamations are. For example, this page at BYU.edu loosely suggests they are:
- The First Presidency's Counsel on Youth (1999)
- The Family: A Proclamation to the World (1995)
- God's Love for All Mankind (1978)
- Parenthood (1942)
- The Origin of Man (1909)
Contrast this with this list from The Encyclopedia of Mormonism only lists four.
- A Proclamation of the First Presidency of the Church to the Saints Scattered Abroad (1841)
- Proclamation of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (1845)
- Proclamation of the First Presidency and the Twelve Apostles (1865)
- Proclamation of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (1980)
Both of those sources exclude "The Living Christ: The Testimony of the Apostles" (2000), most likely because the two sources (notably the second) were compiled before 2000. (If "The Living Christ" is added to The Mormon Encyclopedia's list, we'd have five. That might be the list.)
Does anyone know what the five proclamations referred to by President Nelson are? If so (and as a requirement for the best answer), please list title, delivery date, a summary of the proclamation, and a link to the official or original proclamation. For extra credit, include today's proclamation, the sixth.
