Ministerial training was an early goal of Mormonism. The priesthood-led institution called the School of the Prophets, established in Kirtland, Ohio, in 1833, was basically a divinity school for prospective missionaries. However, topics of study included, instead of prophecy and revelation, penmanship, English grammar, arithmetic, philosophy, literature, government, geography, and history.Devery S. Anderson is the award-winning author of a serialized history of the Dialogue Foundation. He is the editor of a three-volume documentary history of LDS temple worship, and his book, Emmett Till: The Murder That Shocked the World and Propelled the Civil Rights Movement, was released in August 2015 from University Press of Mississippi.
