Abstract:

"This book is the first comprehensive study of nineteenth-century Mormon architecture and city planning. Professor Hamilton examines the doctrine of Zion, which led to an elaborate hierarchy of building types - temples, tabernacles, meetinghouses, tithing offices, priesthood halls and domestic dwellings. His account, augmented by 135 original and historical photographs, provides a fascinating example of how religious teachings and practices are expressed in planned communities and architectural forms."--Jacket.
