Looking again at the buildings which influenced Longford Cathedral is a good methodology but let us not forget the revivalist writer/architects of the 16th century whose perception of classical architecture is largely what we still regard as “classica” architecture viz. Leon battista Albert, Serlio, Palladio and, also, figures such as Inigo Jones and Lord Burlington.

On a small point with regard to the last posting: the apse shown in the potographs here is that of the lateran Basilica. The remains of the apse of triclinium leonanium are to be found on the square opposite the main entrance to the Basilica and and are as restored by Pius IX in 1857.
