President Cecil O. Samuelson to inaugurate Maxwell Institute lecture March 23

Brigham Young University President Cecil O. Samuelson will be the inaugural speaker at the first Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship lecture Friday, March 23, at 7 p.m. in the Joseph Smith Building auditorium.

Admission is free, and the public is welcome to attend.

President Samuelson will speak on becoming a disciple-scholar, something the late Elder Maxwell addressed frequently. The lecture will be followed by a reception at 8 p.m.

The BYU Board of Trustees recently approved the renaming of the Institute for the Study and Preservation of Ancient Religious Texts to the Neal A. Maxwell Institute for Religious Scholarship in honor of the former member of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The institute now includes the Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies, the Center for the Preservation of Ancient Religious Texts, BYU Studies and the Middle Eastern Texts Initiative.

For more information, contact the Maxwell Institute at (801) 422-9229.
