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 the Latin figure poetry of Alcuin share some common principles of form.

The Carolingian Renaissance is embodied in Charlemagne's political ambitions for creating a well-organized society through implementing ideas of unity, clarity, order, and reason in a modular way of thinking. This dominant principle creates close relationships between different areas of artistic expression and emphasizes the interdisciplinary nature of the medieval culture in general.
