The Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies at Brigham Young University will sponsor a Book of Mormon symposium, “Glimpses of Lehi’s Jerusalem,” on Saturday, Feb. 21, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. in the Harold B. Lee Library auditorium.

The symposium will explore the ancient world of Jerusalem and will cover topics including law and politics, everyday life and agriculture, ancient Hebrew writings, prophecy and Jerusalem as seen by its surrounding neighbors.

The symposium will be held in conjunction with the release of a new book by FARMS titled “Glimpses of Lehi’s Jerusalem.”
