TEMPLES AND SANCTUARIES IN THE ROMAN EAST: RELIGIOUS ARCHITECTURE IN SYRIA, IUDAEA/PALAESTINA AND PROVINCIA ARABIA. Arthur Segal. Oxbow Books, Oxford, 2013. Published in the U.S.A. by Oxbow Books, Philadelphia. 392 pp. with 384 ills. 29 x 22 cm. LC 2013-24252 ISBN 9781842175262 In English.
Publisher's description: This lavishly illustrated volume presents a comprehensive architectural study of 87 individual temples and sanctuaries built in the Roman East between the end of the 1st century BCE and the end of the 3rd century CE, within a broad region encompassing the modern states of Syria, Lebanon, Israel and Jordan. Religious architecture gave faithful expression to the complexity of the Roman East and to its multiplicity of traditions pertaining to ethnic and religious aspects as well as to the powerful influence of Imperial Rome. The source of this power lay in the uniformity of the architectural language, the inventory of forms, the choice of styles and the spatial layout of the buildings.
