Houses, arcades, enameled mosques;
And to make orchard-closes, filled

And view the vineyard's saffron sheen,--
Its amber leaves in glory veiling
The purpling grapes, that hang between
Its long arcades of gold and green.

And the quivering leaves that have caught thy glow,
Like fire-flies glance to the pools below.

whose broken shafts lie round the fountains rim.

Gave back to his footstep a hollow sound;

From the dreary gloom of their long arcades,
Gave warning, with voice and sign.

Despising the joys of man whom I so much loved,
Though my springs boil on by your Gothic arcades and pewing,
And sculptures crude…. Would Jove they could be removed!"

In science:

It is worth to remark that in these works the prominence is treated as an infinitely thin and long line, so that it has no internal structure, although the interplay of the filament current with the surrounding magnetic arcade and photosphere is taken into account.
Prominence seismology using small amplitude oscillations
The prominence electric current lies on the dip of magnetic field lines at the centre of the arcade in (a) and at the center of the magnetic island in (b).
Prominence seismology using small amplitude oscillations
Currents are generated in the corona, and subsequent flux cancellation above polarity inversion lines tends to concentrate the associated magnetic helicity into either sheared arcades or twisted magnetic flux ropes [through the mechanism described by van Bal legooijen and Martens, 1989].
A Non-potential Model for the Sun's Open Magnetic Flux
Figure 2(a) shows, for this experiment, the vertical force balance in the central arcade along the latitude = 0◦ symmetry line for the initial equilibrium.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
Shear flows are applied at the lower boundary, within the central arcade, to generate magnetic field parallel to the active region neutral line (in our 2.5D simulations the shear field will be the magnetic field in the ignorable direction).
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
Reconnection occurs when the current sheet collapses below grid scale and overlying field is removed by this reconnection, which allows further expansion of the central arcade.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
The outward expansion of the sheared arcade occurs exponentially as more and more overlying field is reconnected.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
As the inner arcade is sheared at the β = 0.2 lower boundary the shear energy increases.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
Thus the 0.3 Mm flux tube will stay within the central arcade of the quadrupole when it emerges.
Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation

Tests of Dynamical Flux Emergence as a Mechanism for CME Initiation
The inner arcade of the quadrupole is parallel to the upper half of the flux tube, as can be seen by the arrows, which show the direction of Bx in the plane.
