A couple days ago I received notice of a new conference that will be taking place at Utah State University, in Logan, Utah, on October 29, 2012. The topic will be “Mormonism and the Temple: Examining an Ancient Religious Tradition.” This symposium comes as a collaboration between a new U.S. based temple studies organization called Academy for Temple Studies together with Utah State University Religious Studies program.
This looks like it will be a singular event, with a fantastic line-up of well-known scholars speaking about the temple throughout history! I will certainly be in attendance, and hope to see many of you there too. Please help spread the word of this inaugural conference by sharing news of this event with your friends and family.
