"By means of documentary and graphic evidence, such as Roman coins and mosaics, medieval manuscripts, tapestries, and medallions, this study traces the stages by which both political and religious ideologies were associated with castrum, city-gate, towered facade, cupola, orbis, royal ciborium, and domical vestibule. In addition to showing the influence of the Sacrum palatium upon the church architecture and graphic symbolism of the Middle Ages, the author raises such questions as how the destroyed palaces of Rome, Constantinople, and the Middle Ages should be visualized, and whether the imperial tradition of palace symbolism did not persist in the Islamic East as late as the Moghul Empire in India."
