Salt Lake City Temple

In Hallowed Ground Sacred Journeys, Brigham Young University professors tell the story of the sites that are of importance to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Some sites are well known, such as the Sacred Grove in Palmyra, New York, or the majestic Salt Lake City Temple.

Others may be lesser known, such as the baptismal site of Brigham Young, or the site of the first underground parking garage in America, which was built by Mormons.

Each week on this blog, a new site will be featured, complete with a documentary video and stories and pictures based on the scholarly work of Brigham Young University Religious Education professors.

As we move through time and space across hallowed ground, we see the sacred journeys of those gone before. They have led the way and walked the path that we are now called to tread.

As we consider the responsibilities we have to bear in our time, we don't have to look far to see the shining example of these pioneers. May we all remember the rich heritage that is ours today, and following that example, may we strive to leave our own legacy of faith and perseverance for those who follow.

We invite you to come explore with us and go back in time to visit these magnificent sites as we present Hallowed Ground Sacred Journeys.
