Toward the end of the first century AD, Roman Emperor Domitian erected a temple in Rome, the Templum Gentis Flaviae, to commemorate his illustrious family. Although the temple is long destroyed, fragments of its decorations now in museums in Rome and Ann Arbor allow a partial reconstruction and better understanding of this important monument. This illustrated catalogue of an exhibition at the Kelsey Museum documents the reunion of the temple fragments and examines them in their wider artistic and political contexts. 60p, illus.
