A Topical Guide of Treasure-Seeking Rituals


Joseph Antley

Recommended Posts

For anyone who is interested in examining late 18th/early 19th century treasure-seeking rituals in primary sources, last year I compiled a topical guide of treasure-seeking rituals from the time period. I recently updated the topical guide to include a new source I was previously unaware of (thanks Mike Reed) as well as a table of contents to make browsing simpler. I believe the topical guide is near exhaustive -- if anyone can point to significant texts or to significant ritual-related topics that I haven't included, I would be very grateful.

For those interested, the topical guide can be viewed/downloaded as a PDF here. Hopefully this might prove helpful to anyone who wants to seriously study the topic. Although interesting in its own right, this is obviously especially relevant to studies of early Mormonism and the life of Joseph Smith.

Great job putting these together, Joseph. I have several more things you could probably add to this list... but my notes are an unorganized mess right now, and I am busy applying to PhD programs. When things slow down and I have the time to sift through and organize my notes, I'll send you more of what I have.

Best,

Mike

Thank you. This looks very interesting.

Since you have mentioned this report over at PreMormon.com,

I'm wondering if you'd be willing to work with me in

extracting an illustrated version of its main points?

The illustrated version would contain a number of pictures

and perhaps a chart or two. It would not replace your

original creation, but would offer some additional

details on whichever parts you thought might best be

emphasized.

If you're interested, I'll work up a very short introduction;

place it on the web for your inspection, and we can proceed

from there, to add some of your own discoveries.

Uncle Dale
