THE SPOLIA CHURCHES OF ROME: RECYCLING ANTIQUITY IN THE MIDDLE AGES. Maria Fabricius Hansen. Aarhus University Press, 2016. 256 pp. with 120 ills. ISBN 9788771242102 In English.
Publisher's description: A particularly robust approach to Romes antique past was taken in the Middle Ages, spanning from the Late Antiquity in the fourth century, until roughly the thirteenth century AD. This book looks at how the church-builders treated the architecture of ancient Rome like a quarry full of prefabricated material; examining the cultural, economic and political structure of the church and how this influenced the buildings design. It is this trend of putting old buildings to new uses which presents an array of different forms of architecture and design within modern day Rome.
