The interesting thing to me about Mormonism is how Joseph Smith managed to judge, reasonably well, a point in time in which to reverse the euhumermisation that had become the cornerstone of Christianity and trot out a fresh set of divine revelations that would actually have some traction.

Maybe he just got lucky or maybe he was a reasonable judge of the religious volatility of the environ he was in and took the opportunity to make a successful pitch. Plus also keeping a handle on which revelations were "definitive" without having to go back down the process of euhumerisation as a means to inhibit others coming up with fresh revelations that would undermine his sect.
