In-depth study of the Ara Pacis

by

The Ara Pacis Augustae (Altar of Augustan Peace), a famous Roman monument constructed in 13-9 BCE during the reign of Augustus, is the subject of a new, expansive web publication by Charles Rhyne. Rhyne, Professor Emeritus from Reed College, produced his site to make “available a more comprehensive body of images of the Ara Pacis than previously available in print or web publication.” His web publication includes high quality images as well as in-depth documentation on the altar, its restorations and now the recently constructed new museum — Museo dell’Ara Pacis — housing the monument (Richard Meier and Partners, 2006).
