Pantheon Entrance Pantheon Interior of Dome 1

The Door of the Pantheon

Part of the interior of the Dome of the Pantheon
Originally the dome was covered with gilded bronze.  in 1632, when St. Peterís Basilica was being rebuilt, Pope Urban VII
ordered the bronze melted down.  The bronze was used by Bernini
 to create the canopy over
main altar of St, Peterís.
Popeís through the ages have constantly put their names on
these ancient monuments ... when this happened at St. James
we called it vandalism and graffiti!
