Abstract Der Holy Temple of the Unicorn ist die Kapelle der Spiritual Baptist Gemeinde von Grenada (Karibik). In drei Gottesdiensten werden 7 Kandidaten auf ihre Taufe vorbereitet. Die Gottesdienste beginnen mit dem Anzünden von Kerzen und der Weihen der Mittelsäule. Während der Gottesdienste finden "shoutings" und Anrufungen statt, die vor allem auch dazu dienen, "power" zu erhalten. Am Schluß des dritten Gottesdienstes findet in der Morgendämmerung des nächsten Tages die Taufe der Kandidaten im Meer statt.
The Holy Temple of the Unicorn is the chapel of the Spiritual Baptist Church of Grenada in the Caribbean. In three services, seven candidates are prepared for their baptism. At the beginning of the services, candles are lit and the central column is consecrated. During the services, "shoutings" and invocations can be heard, whose principal purpose is to preserve power. The candidates are baptized in the sea at the end of the third service when the new day is dawning.
