Muitas imagens da arquitectura foram «iconoteologia». Many images of ancient and traditional architecture were «iconotheological». This blog is to explain its origin.

There is a recent exhibition - about Imaginary Architecture - in MNAA, our National Museum of Antique Art.

Remember last year we had written about the Museum and quoted Dana Arnold, and her defense for new thematic researches on architecture*.

In this exhibition (temporary, until 30 March) the curators’ team is proposing some renewed ideas and further readings on different subjects concerning architecture.

A good reason to congratulate the new trails appearing in this scientific area (here in Potugal): even if after our discoveries we would like to see better and much superior advancements.

With the importance we are giving to Ideograms or Ornaments - as «words employed in architecture» - naturally we would prefer to see a little more…

For example, we perceived that a pattern we can see frequently in architectural works, it also appears in several chalices and custodies: why?  

In the past it meant the heaven? A heavenly God from who emanates imperial and royal power? Or the Holy Spirit, associated to a divine Light?
