2015 Forty–Fourth Annual Sidney B. Sperry Symposium, Joseph Smith Building (JSB) Auditorium, and other adjacent campus locations.
The Sperry Symposium is not just for professional teachers in the Church’s Seminaries and Institutes of Religion and at BYU—it’s for all who study the scriptures. The symposium is free to the public, and no registration is required.
The Sidney B. Sperry Symposium, held annually at the end of October at Brigham Young University, features speakers from BYU Religious Educational, Seminary and Institute
teachers in the Church Educational System, and other gospel scholars. The symposium focus is traditionally on the topic for Gospel Doctrine and Church study for the upcoming year.
The theme for the 2015 symposium will be The Coming Forth of the Book of Mormon.
Sidney Branton Sperry (1895–1977), a leading LDS scholar of the Book of Mormon and Bible, joined the Religion Department at Brigham Young University in 1932 and retired in 1969. The first Sperry Symposium was held four years later in 1973.
The symposium is free and open to the public. For further information, call 801–422–3611.
