Caption: Gate of the Temple of Jerusalem. 16th-century artwork showing an imagined version of the biblical story of the temple that would rise after Jerusalem was destroyed. The architecture shown here is based on the description of a gate located in the vestibule of Solomon's Temple (the First Temple, built in the 10th century BC). The text refers to Jerusalem ('Hirosolimis') and the Beautiful Gate of the Lord's Temple (Porta Templi Domini Dicta Speciosa). This gate was said to have been designed by architects sent to Solomon by Hiram of Tyre. Artwork from 'On the Divine Proportion' (1509) by Italian mathematician Luca Pacioli (c.1447-1517).
