I have truly found the Royal way of treating in their natural order all of matheamatics. And having begun with the Ratios and Proportions, Common Properties of Quantities, the univrsal subject of all Mathematics, and seeming to me that I have not only treated them, as I said, in their natural order, but have also amplified and pared them down where necessary, and with such facility have I explained them that they have become clear and easy, difficult though they were.
Silvio Belli, "To the Readers".

Rozmeri Basic examines a modular way of thinking as a point of departure for the analysis of selected examples of architecture and literature, revealing that the church of St. Donat in Zadar, Croatia, and Alcuin's acrostics share some common principles of form.
This study consists of two phases: first to test the applicability of the modular organization of space in an architectural monument; and, second, to see if the same concept is applicable to a work of art in a different medium. By using the analytical tools of number symbolism and sequential organization of space, the study emphasized relationships between forms, meanings, and functions of the acrostics in regard to significant theological, historical, and political events of the time.
