In a series of 16, one-hour classes, author and researcher Anthony E. Larson will personally instruct you. Using slides and video clips to demonstrate these amazing and revealing ideas, he will lead you step by step through an adventure of discovery and insight.
The curriculum for these classes features a lengthy examination of ancient cosmological history and its bearing upon the restored gospel, the visions of the prophets, the imagery found in the scriptures and in our temples. These subjects will be explored in 16, one-hour sessions, just as you would in a college-level course. This course is a pre-recorded lecture/slide/video presentation.
You are welcome to take the classes in any order you wish, though it is strongly recommended that you follow the suggested order as each class builds upon information provided in the prior classes. Also, following the order will avoid the inevitable, perplexing questions that arise in your mind if the proper groundwork is not covered first.
This is groundbreaking research. It explains gospel symbolism. It explains the imagery used by the prophets and the Savior. It is not difficult to understand, but it does take some time to adjust to the new and exciting perspectives. Once you make that adjustment, you will be able to understand the most difficult scriptural symbolism with ease.
No other interpretation of gospel symbolism can help you achieve the level of comprehension you will achieve with this information. It will make reading the most difficult scriptural passages easy, like reading a newspaper of magazine. At at the same time, it will expand your gospel comprehension many fold. Lastly, your testimony of the Restoration and the Prophet Joseph Smith will grow exponentially.
These are not idle promises. This is the consensus of those who have taken this course.
To whet your appetite, a 9-minute, pre-recorded course preview is available on the at no cost. This preview includes an overview of the information contained in the course titled “The Ancient Skies and the Restored Gospel.” See what makes this course so different from other efforts you may have encountered in your gospel study, and learn what makes it so exciting and rewarding.

Discover the many symbols that arose from the lighted limb of Saturn and the plasma pillar anciently and how those symbols were employed in ancient texts as well as scripture.
#7 – The One Story
All the prophets saw the same cosmological elements in vision. So each tells the same story, but from a perspective unique to their culture and era.
#8 – Mars & the Mountain
See how the career of one planet and a plasma discharge gave rise to similar myths and traditions in the past in all antique cultures.
