Read how the temple ground plan evolved from its Mycenaean megaron origin to its final peripteral colonnaded form in the Classical Period. Discover the theory behind its earliest wooden prototype to that of a massive stone structure.

Vitruvius [1] wrote how he descovered the secret of designing Doric temples from his masters. He points to geometrical rules which lated became enshrined within the Masonic system as part of the formal solution between irrational numbers, proportional theory, and temple architecture. But most significantly, my reasearch formulates the mathematical scheme that bewildered art historians for centuries, culminating in the 2000 year old secret Pythagoras [2] used to implement the Doric Order blueprint.

Doric temple architecture clearly follows a set standard in its form and configuration. The statistical results verify as to what lengths the ancient architects went through in order to create the temple design and proportion, and to what standards those architects were required to conform. The results are revolutionary in outlining the direct role Pythagoras had in determining just how ridged those restraints were.
