9780520203778: Temples and Towns in Roman Iberia: The Social and Architectural Dynamics of Sanctuary Designs, from the Third Century B.C. to the Third Century A.D.

This is the first comparative study of Roman architecture on the Iberian peninsula, covering six centuries from the arrival of the Romans in the third century B.C. until the decline of urban life on the peninsula in the third century A.D. During this period, the peninsula became an influential cultural and political region in the Roman world. Iberia supplied writers, politicians, and emperors, a fact acknowledged by Romanists for centuries, though study of the peninsula itself has too often been brushed aside as insignificant and uninteresting. In this book William E. Mierse challenges such a view.

By examining in depth the changing forms of temples and their placement within the urban fabric, Mierse shows that architecture on the peninsula displays great variation and unexpected connections. It was never a slavish imitation of an imported model but always a novel experiment. Sometimes the architectural forms are both new and unexpected; in some cases specific prototypes can be seen, but the Iberian form has been significantly altered to suit local needs. What at first may seem a repetition of forms upon closer investigation turns out to be theme and variation. Mierse brings to his quest an impressive learning, including knowledge of several modern and ancient languages and the archaeology of the Roman East, which allows him a unique perspective on the interaction between events and architecture.

From the Inside Flap:

Temples and Towns is the first comparative study of Roman sanctuary design for the six centuries of architecture on the Iberian Peninsula, from the arrival of the Romans in the third century B.C. until the decline of urban life on the peninsula in the third century A.D. During these six centuries, the peninsula became an important influence in the Roman world. The area supplied writers, politicians, and emperors, a fact acknowledged by Romanists for centuries. But study of the peninsula itself has often been brushed aside as insignificant and uninteresting. In Temples and Towns in Roman Iberia Mierse challenges such a view.

By examining the changing forms of temples and their placement within the urban fabric, Mierse shows that Iberian architecture had great variation. It was never a slavish imitation of an imported model but always a novel experiment. Sometimes the forms arrived at were both new and unexpected; sometimes the specific prototypes were obvious. But the Iberian form was significantly altered to suit local needs. What might seem at first to be a repetition of forms turns out to be theme and variation upon closer investigation. Mierse brings impressive learning to his quest, which allows him a unique perspective on the interaction between the events and architecture he chronicles here.

The architectural changes are interesting in themselves, but also of note are the reasons underlying the modifications. We see the growing role of private patronage and the increasing importance of local wealth in determining choices of form over the six centuries. We also see how the architecture responds to Iberians' increasing sense of Romanness, which by the third century has takencomplete hold of most of the peninsula. The power of outside forces on local forms, the influence of local elites who paid for the structures, and the innovations of architects and builders produced distinctive designs.

About the Author:

William E. Mierse is Associate Professor of Art History and Classics at the University of Vermont. He is the coauthor, with George Hanfmann, of Sardis from Prehistoric to Roman Times (1983).
