The biennial Temple on Mount Zion Conference will be held on Saturday, November 7, 2020, at Brigham Young University (details of the location at BYU will be forthcoming). This conference has been a forum for Latter-day Saint scholars to deal with the ancient temple in the light of the most up-to-date scholarship from the perspective of faith and commitment to the principles of the Restoration. We would like to invite individuals interested in contributing to the discussion of ancient temples to submit a proposal (with a title, thesis statement, and a brief outline) to Stephen Ricks (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jeffrey M. Bradshaw (email@example.com). From these submissions we will select individuals whom we will invite to present at the conference. Please be aware that these presentation proposals should deal with the ancient temple and avoid any explicit reference to the modern Latter-day Saint temple. Papers selected for the conference will need to be submitted by the presenters in advance of the conference.
