AbstractThis thesis studies change and meaning in the extant Moravian mission architecture of Labrador. It studies the built environment constructed by the Moravian Church between 1752 and the 1990s. It discusses the history of the church and traces the development of architectural styles from Europe to Labrador. It demonstrates how architecture is linked to issues of power, ideology and order, and how the buildings are used as political and social symbols. The thesis concludes by explaining a major shift in the way these architectural symbols were used and created in the twentieth century.
