This chapter begins a two-chapter treatment of the early Mormon temple cultus. Beginning in the “School of the Prophets” with images of sealing to salvation, ritual purification (washing and anointing), the Kirtland, Ohio, temple cultus of the 1830s incorporated the charismatic and evangelistic “endowment of power,” laying the groundwork for the Nauvoo, Illinois, cultus of the 1840s. Kirtland also witnessed the introduction of the important and powerful figure of Elijah as the angelic patron of temple and intergenerational association.

Keywords:   Kirtland Temple cultus, endowment of power, washing, anointing, sealing to salvation, ritual purification, School of the Prophets
