Pantheon DomeAnother widely known “domed structure” is that of Saint Peter’s Basilica. This domed church is actually a church that is very important to Catholic’s. They call it “the church of the Pope’s”. It is
designed “as a three-aisled Latin cross with a dome at the crossing, directly above the high altar, which covers the shrine of St. Peter the Apostle.” [Enc17]In conclusion, the styles of the Greek and Roman Empires have greatly inspired artists throughout time. The Romans actually derived much of their basic architecture from the Greek’s and then elevated it to present a more upscale appearance. Both empires took ques from important people who lived at the time, or beliefs. The Greeks made many structures to honor the deities while the Romans honor warriors and champions. This week’s reading was very interesting and provided us an enormous view into both styles.Thanks for reading,Suz GreenReferencesEncyclopedia Britannica, Inc. (2017). St. Peter's Basilica.
