The ideas in
Hugh Nibley's now little-known series in the 1955 Improvement Era seem to have made their way into Mormon
culture and discourse without reference to source. It made a small splash among Mormon observers of the
day but deserves careful appreciation. A number of other modern writers both inside and outside the LDS
Church have taken up similar themes, in some cases seemingly in ignorance of Nibley's work. We here give the twelve-part series as it appeared in 1955, sans illustrations.
