The lecture series "The Work of Hugh W. Nibley: On the 100th Anniversary of His Birth" concluded in April. The videos of each lecture are currently being prepared for availability on our Web site. Presently, video of four of the lectures can be accessed through the Upcoming Events section of the Maxwell Institute home page (maxwellinstitute.byu.edu).
Videos of Richard Bushman's lecture, "Nibley and Joseph Smith," Robert Millet's lecture, "Nibley and the Church," Daniel C. Peterson's lecture, "Nibley as Apologist," and Zina N. Petersen's lecture, "Nibley's Early Education," are now available. An introduction to the series and an overview of Nibley's work by Paul Y. Hoskisson are available at the beginning of Bushman's video.
In addition, transcripts of the lecture by Marilyn Arnold, " 'Words, Words, Words': Hugh Nibley on the Book of Mormon," and the lecture by C. Wilfred Griggs, "Hugh Nibley, Mentor to the Saints," are also available on the Web page.
The lectures were sponsored by the Laura F. Willes Center for Book of Mormon Studies, the Foundation for Ancient Research and Mormon Studies, the College of Religious Education, and the Harold B. Lee Library. Presenters explored the scholarship and scope of Hugh Nibley's work.
