From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A sacred history is a retelling of history, in either a literary or oral format, with less emphasis on historical fact and more upon instilling faith, defining a group of believers, and/or explaining natural phenomenon.

Sacred histories have meaning and context for a specific group regardless of their historic verifiability; they may or may not be founded on historical fact, which is often a source of contention between believers and non-believers. Such types of accounts may include the Creation, Fall, and Exodus in the Hebrew Bible (Old Testament), the Book of Mormon, and the Yakub.
