The Nauvoo Temple Experience

The Nauvoo Temple Experience Devery Anderson, co-editor with Gary James Bergera of the two-volume documentary history set ,Joseph Smith’s Quorum of the Anointed, 1842–1845 and The Nauvoo Endowment Companies,1845–1846 (published last fall by Signature Books), will give us a glimpse into temple worship in Nauvoo during its heyday as well as in the chaos that followed Joseph Smith’s martyrdom. How did the temple function for early Latter-day Saints compared to its role and place in Mormon lives and doctrine today?
