Contemporaries were aware of these events far-reaching symbolic significance and of their immediate impact as demonstrations of political power and religious conviction.

Joined in any temple-destruction are the meaning of the monument, actions taken, and subsequent literary discourse. Paradigms of perception, specific interests, and forms of expression of quite various protagonists clashed. Archaeologists, historians, and historians of religion illuminate temple-destruction from different perspectives, analysing local configurations within larger contexts, both regional and imperial, in order to find an appropriate larger perspective on this phenomenon within the late antique movement from temple to church.
