  13. James L. Carroll, “A Revised Temple Typology” in Hagion Temenos, 2nd Edition, ed. Stephen Ricks, (Provo UT: BYU Press, 2005).

    • “John M. Lundquist’s “Temple Typology” has been highly influential in the past several years. This “Revised Temple Typology” attempts to build upon what he has created by synthesizing several of Lundquist’s publications and by adding several new elements to the typology. Further, the typology is reordered, and organized into three main categories, “the Temple Space,” “The Temple Rites,” and “The Temple and Community.” Short titles have also been added to the typology elements. It is hoped that these changes will improve the use of the typology in teaching situations.”
