A rebroadcast (with permission) of an early Exploring Sainthood podcast episode from 2013 with Micah Nickolaisen interviewing Mormon historian Devery Anderson. A rich discussion regarding the development of Mormon temple worship from as early as Kirtland all the way up to modern times. Devery is candid in talking about changes in the temple rituals and also shares the value he derives from his own temple attendance. This is a four part interview that is worth every second. The topics covered are as follows:

Part 1 Getting to know Devery and the source materials, and organization of his temple history work. Major changes in temple worship.
