John Ruskin compares the palaces to the homes of the citizens and states' that the great buildings are extensions of the homes, they just happen to be larger and more elaborate, they are meant to be the place where the public can serve their God.
He also talks about the artists who created the buildings and how he was able to date the structures and tell the difference between the construction from the 13th, 14th, and 15th century in the same building, the difference between techniques through the centuries. He was able to detect Lombard, Bystantine, and Renaissance building methods.
This is an excellent book and serves as a wonderful guide to the use of building techniques.
