Commemorating the 1978 Priesthood and Temple Revelation (Maxwell Institute Conference)

By September 19, 2018

Tuesday, October 12, 2018 LINK

On June 1, 1978 the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints extended priesthood ordination and full temple participation to members of African descent. Forty years later, scholars and students will gather at Brigham Young University to discuss the contexts of the restriction’s origins and the landmark revelation that lifted them, the revelation’s international dimensions, and the meaning of the revelation for today’s Church.
