And mosque architecture was stolen from Christians. The Pantocrators (this is why they were domed) and other icons were plastered over, Crosses lopped off, and minarets installed.
Not entirely true

Where there has been some early architectural vandalism done in the early centuries. The domed design originates as a mix of Mesopotamian, Roman, Persian and Byzantine architecture. The dome used in places of worship and other high office did originate in 2500 BC at the Sumerian Royal Cemetary.
