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

What is supposed to be the largest stone arch ever built is in the following image. Which we presented in Vila do Conde at a conference held in 2005.

Just then the purpose was to remember the 300 years of a local aqueduct, with its 999 arches (that are round arches).

We profited of such conference and article, to develop our belief on «iconotheological motives» that in the past justified the employment of specific geometries.

What to say about the emphatic lozenges? Are they something more than a visual (and needed) grid**? With an ancient meaning: “reminiscent…” and vague but yet evocative of some ideas - as it was recognized, already in the 18th century, by William Chambers?

**Applied to unify and tie - by the ceiling and in a superior level - the different parts existing at ground level?
