The Great Tabernacle

    Episode 9


    It's one of the most recognizable buildings in the world. Some visitors around the beginning of the 20th century criticized it as "a prodigious tortoise that has lost its way," but famed architect Frank Lloyd Wright dubbed the Salt Lake Tabernacle "one of the architectural masterpieces of the country and perhaps the world." Kirk Henrichsen and Randy Dixon from the Church History Department discuss the great Tabernacle on Temple Square and the challenges leading up to its construction.
