about

This book examines the development of Roman temple architecture from its earliest history in the sixth century BC to the reigns of Hadrian and the Antonines in the second century AD. John Stamper analyzes the temples' formal qualities, the public spaces in which they were located and, most importantly, the authority of precedent in their designs. He also traces Rome's temple architecture as it evolved over time and how it accommodated changing political and religious contexts, as well as the affects of new stylistic influences.
John Stamper is Associate Professor in the School of Architecture at the University of Notre Dame. Both an architect and architectural historian, he is the author of Chicago's North Michigan Avenue: Planning and Development, 1900-1930.

Editorial Reviews

"this study should be applauded for drawing our attention back to the Capitoline temple's significance for ancient architectural history, as well as providing an admirable presentation of temples in Rome from Tarquinius Priscus through the Antonines." - John Robert Senseney, Northern Illinois University, American Journal of Archaeology
