former swedenborgian church - phila - T P Chandler
Swedenborgianism is not a widely known denomination - they adhere to the mystically inspired interpretations of the Bible of Emmaneul Swedenborg - who lived in the 17th & 18th centuries. They have a rich architectural heritage.
Theophilus Parsons Chandler, the talented Philadelphia architect, could be selective in his commissions, having married into the Dupont family. Pittsburghers may recognize a family resemblence of this church to First Presbyterian & Third Presbyterian Churches by Chandler.
