MacDonald describes the Pantheon’s structure in some detail, against the background of contemporary architecture and building methods…and he gives a brilliant resume of its influence on other architects from just after its building to the 1950s…an exceptionally well constructed and readable book.The Economist

The Pantheon is an informative and extremely well organized [book on] one of the most important and influential buildings in world history. Throughout, the language is appealing… Not only a coherent summary of the history, description, and analysis of the building, but also a discussion of the relevant architectural issues within a larger framework.Journal of the Society of Architectural Historians
