The Pantheon, Rome. The Pantheon is noteworthy, among all surviving Roman temples, for its remarkably fine state of preservation. The Pantheon was once a pagan temple to all the gods. It had a Greek name. ‘Pan’ means ‘all’ and ‘theon’ means gods. Built in 27 B.C. by Agrippa and restored by Domitian after the fire of 80 A.D., the Pantheon is the best preserved of all the monuments of ancient Rome. After it had again suffered damage, it was rebuilt in its present form by Hadrian in 130 A.D. The temple is composed of a pronaos leading to a large circular chamber covered by a cupola. In 609 Boniface IV consecrated it as a Christian church, dedicating it to the Virgin and the Martyrs with the name of Sancta Maria Ad Martyres.
