  2. Ben, is this the presentation of the papers from the annual Mormon Theology Seminar then, or a different event? If it is for the MTS, who should I bug to update their web site? Thanks for being an informer for MormonConferences.org!

  3. Kent, I’m sorry but I don’t have any more information than what I posted here. Hopefully an insider stops by and clues us in.

  4. It is another meeting of the Mormon Theology Seminar. The linked website is specific to this seminar. I’m not certain why the main webpage is not updated, but the second has the details of the current seminar. I’m not sure whether this is _the_ annual seminar, or merely one of a few that happen this year.
