This imaginary view of King Solomon's Temple appeared in the "Polyglot Bible" (Biblia Sacra, Hebraica, Chaldaice, Graece, & Latine), the text of which was printed in four languages: Hebrew, Syriac, Greek, and Latin. Based on vague Biblical descriptions (1 Kings 6,7; 2 Chron. 3,4; Ezekiel 41), the structure is portrayed as rectangular in shape with a series of courtyards and an innermost Temple proper. Overall, the depiction is more grandiose than the Bible suggests. The artist follows the custom of the time, portraying the architecture in a familiar Italian Renaissance style.
