Резюме:

The purpose of the paper is to study the ideological messages sent by Augustus through architectural monuments, focusing its attention to the temple of Mars Ultor, seeing it as one monument with the forum of Augustus. The focus of this paper is set on the following questions – the long period of time between the oath of construction and the consecration of the temple. A lot of reasons of financial, political and ideological nature are considered. Special attention is drawn to Marcus Antonius’s relation to the monument as possible co-initiator and political adversary of Augustus. The second problem concerns concepts of the Roman mind, placed in the scheme of the temple and the forum. These concepts are given new ideological meaning by the one who order the construction. The study concludes that Augustus intentionally leaves the original idea so that he can draw the attention of the Roman society away from the civil wars to the secured presence which he guards.
