I’m taking the occasion, with his permission, to correct an error (regarding the date of the 2020 Temple on Mount Zion Conference) and to remedy an omission (regarding the submission deadline) in the call for papers that I received from my long-time friend and colleague (and former companion in the Switzerland Zürich Mission) Professor Stephen D. Ricks a couple of days ago and posted in this space.
Once again, if you’re interested in presenting, we would enjoy receiving a proposal from you. And please do consider passing this invitation on to anybody else among your acquaintances who might be both interested in this conference and qualified (by quality of thinking and focus of research, much more so than by formal degrees) to present at it:
Even if you yourself have no plans to submit a paper proposal, it isn’t too early to mark 7 November 2020 on your calendar. (The date that was previously given, 6 November 2020, was mistaken, although the day of the week, Saturday, was correct.) If previous conferences are any indication, if the past is prelude, this conference will very likely be a rich and fascinating one. And I’ve already received specific indications from Professor Ricks that some very good proposals — including one that may treat the Peruvian Temple of Wiracocha at Raqch’i, shown above — are on the horizon.
