William Weeks, Architect of the Nauvoo Temple

Author Joseph E. Arrington,

The Nauvoo Temple is well known to students of LDS Church history, but the structure's architect, William Weeks, has slipped into obscurity. Yet he deserves to be better known today, not that he was a great architect outside his group and time, but because he helped to translate the purposes and ideals of the early Latter-day Saints into architectural terms and because his work represented the zenith of temple-building activities during the lifetime of the Prophet Joseph Smith.
