Below is a link to "Homogeneous Transformation Matrices" which gives explicit methods to construct a homogeneous matrix that effects an n-dimensional rotation R given:
(1) an n+1 x 2 matrix h representing the invariant n-2 dimensional flat of the rotatation, and the angle of rotation r about the invariant n-2 dimensional flat.

Or

(2) two n+1 by 1 matrices h1 and h2 representing oriented intersecting hyperplanes, where R carries h1 to h2.

Note: n in the link means n+1 here.
