Abstract

Long recognized as a major early work of Frank Lloyd Wright, Unity Temple may be understood as the culmination of a series of experiments in a new architecture for liberal religion near Chicago around 1900. Its precursors included All Souls Church, Unity Chapel, and Abraham Lincoln Center, which embodied ideas for church design advocated by Wright's uncle, Rev. Jenkin Lloyd Jones. Unity Temple also signified the theological ideals of Rev. Rodney F. Johonnot, the minister of Unity Church in Oak Park, who helped to select Wright as architect and who articulated the religious symbolism of Unity Temple in terms of Unitarian and Universalist thought.
