Abstract [sv]

In trying to place the history of architecture in its proper position among the cultural, historical or creative disciplines one might find it useful to deconstruct the architectural knowledge into its many components. The nine fields of learning discussed by Vitruvius may be instrumental in this process, along with at least one other discipline - that of theology. Such a deconstruction may be found useful not least when expanding the scope of architectural history outside the western sphere. Beyond the tradition of architectural treatises, established by Alberti if not already by Vitruvius, textual sources will instead be found in the multitude of related fields of knowledge. But the study of architectural history through the lenses of its disciplinary branches may also open up other, perhaps unexpected, perspectives.
