The architectural works of Edward Brickell White have fascinated me since I was a small boy. I initially knew his Market Hall and spire for St. Philip's Church, but eventually discovered his wide array of superb buildings in Charleston. I readily understood his classical revival structures, but his Gothic Revival Huguenot and Grace Churches puzzled me. Almost in a veritable sea of classicism these monuments stood out to me as cultural outposts of a movement not quite fully understood in the South. In the work of this thesis, I have attempted to move beyond the graces of Charleston, and discuss all churches by White in the Gothic Revival style advocated and propagated by nineteenth-century ecclesiologists.
