Description

This is the first translation into English of Juan Bautista Villalpando's "Book Five of In Ezechielem Explanationes et Apparatus Vrbis Templi Hierosolymitani". After its publication in 1604 the work stimulated a debate - over not only the architecture of Solomon's Temple but on the very nature of the origins of architecture - that endured for more than one hundred and fifty years, in the form of commentaries and other reconstructions.
