In this thorough study, she approaches the questions of how and where the genre first arose in art, how ot developed as it was `adapted' by subsequebt artists and how, in particular, imperial Rome made its mark on and through the Divine Rider. The author bases her study on close examination of `horse and rider' statues, votives and reliefs from across Europe, taking into consideration the dating, material and mythological association.
