The Sacred Geometry of the Ephrata Cloister

Presented by Nick Siegert

The buildings at Ephrata do not appear to have been constructed with a master plan in mind, but Conrad Beissel and some of his followers organized some of their space and time around Beissel’s mystical language and beliefs. in design and in placement, these structures created a sacred or holy space whose placement and design possibly had special symbolic significance. This online presentation will focus on one of the buildings at Ephrata and the ideas that influenced it.
