The LDS Church History Library will host a lecture: “Bread, Water, Oil and Cloth: Religious Objects, Mormon Women and Ritual,” Thursday, Sept. 12 at 7 p.m. in the Assembly Hall on Temple Square.
The lecture will look at the history of Latter-day Saint women through the lens of religious or sacred objects like the sacrament bread and vessels, sacred clothing, consecrated oil or religious textiles, according to a press release.
“We can develop a better understanding of how women in the past experienced such objects and how these interactions shaped their beliefs,” the release said.
The lecture will be presented by Kris Wright, an historian and author.
The event is part of the 2013 “Men and Women of Faith” lecture series, held on the second Thursday of every month. The lecture is free and open to the public.
