This book consists of ten articles, written in English, German, French and Italian, between 1962 and 2016. The papers, which discuss subjects ranging from medieval art to the Baroque, have been selected as the author’s most representative studies and deal with the history of architecture and art in relation to the contemporary realm of religious, philosophical, and scientific ideas. At the same time, the works discussed here are not only treated as products of the skills and talents of individual artists-creators but also as an expression of the wishes of their recipients and in particular of the wishes and culture of their patrons.
