Building domes was not new, but combining a domed cylinder with a traditional,

The Pantheon is one of the most important architectural monuments of all time. Thought to have been built by Emperor Hadrian in approximately AD 125 on the site of an earlier, Agrippan-era monument, it brilliantly displays the spatial pyrotechnics emblematic of Roman architecture and engineering. The Pantheon gives an up-to-date account of recent research on the best preserved building in the corpus of ancient Roman architecture from the time of its construction to the twenty-first century. Each chapter addresses a specific fundamental issue or period pertaining to the building; together, the essays in this volume shed light on all aspects of the Pantheon's creation, and establish the importance of the history of the building to an understanding of its ancient fabric and heritage, its present state, and its special role in the survival and evolution of ancient architecture in modern Rome.

Learn about the history of the Pantheon in Rome with iMinds Travel's insightful fast knowledge series. Which Roman building has been used as a military fortress, a Christian church, and a fish and vegetable market during the course of its long life? The answer is the Pantheon, whose majestic columns and magnificent dome ensure its place as one of Rome's most impressive architectural feats. Its ability to be transformed to suit different religions and cultures has ensured it has lasted for millennia. Firstly, the Pantheon is an awesome reminder of Rome's ancient past. It comes from the Greek words 'pan', meaning 'all', and 'theos', meaning 'god'. So it started life as a monument built to all Roman gods. And it was one of the most sacred places in the city in Roman times, with impressive white-marble statues of Jupiter and Minerva once standing there. Visitors today find a Pantheon that is in on lower ground to its surrounds. But it was originally built on level ground. This just shows how much ancient rubble the city of Rome is built on today! Marcus Agrippa built the first Pantheon in 27BC. But the version we see today was constructed by the Emperor Hadrian between 118 and 125AD. Hadrian's building may have replaced Agrippa's, but he paid homage to the former patron, with a Latin plaque that translates to 'M. Agrippa made this'. Both ancient buildings were temples to the Roman gods, but this purpose of the Pantheon was not to last. iMinds will tell you the story behind the place with its innovative travel series, transporting the armchair traveller or getting you in the mood for discover on route to your destination. iMinds brings targeted knowledge to your eReading device with short information segments to whet your mental appetite and broaden your mind.

Charles Fellows, mountaineer, national hero, and first class bastard is found murdered in the sea near his sailing yacht on the Cornish coast. Evan Briscoe is dispatched by Scotland Yard to investigate and finds motives a-plenty. Fellows was disliked, if not hated by the local populace… at least by the male population. Or was the root of the crime in the "Pantheon of Heroes" of which Fellows is a revered member? Sir Tony Castlefort, the only human to climb higher than Charles Fellows, and other members of the Pantheon insist his death was misadventure. As Briscoe ventures into the Pantheon he finds the gods that dwell there have feet of clay. Only Celia Fellows, Charles' lonely and unhappy sister, maintains that her brother was murdered. To his discomfort, Briscoe finds himself attracted to this strong-minded woman. Celia discovers that all heroes do not dwell in the Pantheon… and Briscoe finds something else… something far more personal… something he thought he'd never find…

From one of the world's leading authorities on the subject, an innovative and comprehensive account of religion in the ancient Roman and Mediterranean world In this ambitious and authoritative book, Jörg Rüpke provides a comprehensive and strikingly original narrative history of ancient Roman and Mediterranean religion over more than a millennium—from the late Bronze Age through the Roman imperial period and up to late antiquity. While focused primarily on the city of Rome, Pantheon fully integrates the many religious traditions found in the Mediterranean world, including Judaism and Christianity. This generously illustrated book is also distinguished by its unique emphasis on lived religion, a perspective that stresses how individuals’ experiences and practices transform religion into something different from its official form. The result is a radically new picture of Roman religion and of a crucial period in Western religion—one that influenced Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and even the modern idea of religion itself.

The ancient temple of the Pantheon is the ‘heart’ of Rome. This self-guided walking tour explores the area just beyond the Pantheon and focusses on art and architecture ranging from antiquity through to the seventeenth century. You will be able to view art in the form of sculpture, painting and architecture by simply looking at a façade, or by engaging with public spaces, or by walking into a church—in situ, intrinsically linked to that place, and therefore adding meaning. A few paces behind the Pantheon is a stone elephant with a distinctive personality, and one of the many works of art by sixteenth-century Baroque artist, Gianlorenzo Bernini, seen throughout this walk. The delightful mix of art works inside S. Maria sopra Minerva belies its austere façade. Close by this Dominican stronghold are two Jesuit churches: both orders were powerful forces in the Roman Catholic Counter-Reformation that began with the Council of Trent (1545-1563) and ended in the mid-seventeenth century. Jesuit artists produced art that aimed to inspire devotion in the faithful and non-believers as a means of fighting against Lutheran ‘heresy’. As such, much of Rome’s religious Baroque art was propaganda, aimed at reviving Catholicism’s dominance. The seventeenth-century illusionistic ceiling paintings that you will encounter in the Jesuit churches, Il Gesu and S. Ignazio, are prime examples. In art historical terms ‘baroque’ has come to signify the dominant artistic style of the seventeenth century which originated in Rome in the early 1600s and endured until the end of the century. Much of Baroque painting and sculpture is characterised by drama, natural realism and emotional expressiveness. The increase in tourism en-masse is gradually destroying the individual traveller’s ability to engage directly (and quietly) with the history and magnificence of works of art in ancient cities such as Rome. In this walk you can avoid the hefty entrance fees to galleries and museums, and the jostling of crowds. So be prepared to inhale the atmosphere and linger along the route as long as you like.

"Compared by literary authorities with Nobel’s and other great writers as Brodsky, Herbert, Milosz, Kancev, Kleist, Artaud, Kundera and Grossman; this is Shpend Sollaku Noé, a poignant pen that brings sad images and deep feelings, an explosive mix of sarcasm that makes us to live anxiety of reality; he is a writer with a great present and a bright future." Attilio Bertolucci, 1999 "I never read a book so beautiful, but baffling; so imbued with lyricism, but bitter as poison; so truthful that you immediately want to read Holy Scripture again; so present that you regret the past; so pungent that you feel you should wear gloves when flipping the pages."
