What is Original Use of Pantheon in Rome, Italy?

Wednesday, June 12, 2019
Pantheon in Rome, Italy around 1700’s
My previous article was about Parthenon with title: What is Purpose of Parthenon in Athens, Greece? 
I mentioned that “the Parthenon is a classical style, a Doric order form. 
While in Rome, Italy, there is historical building called as Pantheon, classic style, but with Corinthian order form. 
Corinthian order form is quite complex compared to simple Doric order form. It is because Corinthian was developed later on, after 200 years of Doric.
The temple was completed by the Roman emperor around 125 A.D. The building age is around 1900 years old. Very well preserved. 
Based on the word of the Pantheon; Pan means every and Theon mean divinity, thus, initially, the temple serves to worship for every god. 
Moreover, Cartwright (2013) suggested that the temple might be the place where emperor shows his divine and power equal to other gods when he is attending the worship or appear in public. 

Pantheon condition recently

The initial function of both Parthenon (Athens) and Pantheon (Rome) is serving as a temple. 
Then, the Pantheon is used as the Roman Church, while Parthenon for museum. Both are tourist objects now days. 
In term of architecture, there is similarity for both Pantheon and Parthenon, they have “8
pillars in front of the entrance.”  
These pillars to support a pediment; a triangular element in upper part of front any classical style buildings. 
Have you been visited Pantheon in Rome, Italy?

  11. Sure! What makes Pantheon unique is its oculus in the dome. It doesn’t look big from below, yet magically it is enough to light the whole cathedral. The same construction with oculus as the main source of natural light is found in Pavlovsk church, next to Saint Petersburg.
