Prince’s Research Excerpts: Temples & Mormonism

About Dr. Prince's Research Excerpts

As research for his book, Power from on High: The Development of Mormon Priesthood, Dr. Gregory Prince captured extensive excerpts and quotations from official church documents, letters, handbooks, interviews, and more on the topics of the priesthood and temples. Dr. Prince has generously shared this rich content, organized by year, for reproduction here. This page collects his research excerpts on the topic of temples. (You can view his priesthood research excerpts here.)

We believe this resource will be particularly interesting and useful to Mormon Studies scholars, Religious Studies faculty and students, as well as anyone with an interest in the topics of temples and sacred spaces.

“Organize yourselves; prepare every needful thing; and establish a house, even a house of prayer, a house of fasting, a house of faith, a house of learning, a house of glory, a house of order, a house of God.”

Doctrine and Covenants 88:119
