Mateusz Michalski



The purpose of the work is to indicate the impact of the Jerusalem festival on European architecture, in particular Polish. The paper attempts to analyze the pattern of the Jerusalem Temple architecture. Two threads dominate the work. The first are columns before entering the temple, their symbolism and metaphorical implementations in synagogue architecture since ancient times and in Christian sacral architecture mainly of the modern period. The second is the issue of the Solomon order, its principles of development in modern architectural treaties, and practical application in sacral architecture.
