Pantheon: the 1,400th Anniversary Celebration...









Once pagan...now a Christian temple! And the Mass setting used was for the dedication of a church terribilis est locus iste (which was actually composed for the dedication of the Pantheon!).

Great pictures of what seems like a beautiful and reverent Mass.
Do you know when the pantheon was renovated? I just realized the altar rail and hanging baldacchino are gone, and the Madonna behind the altar is in a much simpler frame. Was this recent or was I just used to seeing old pictures?

beautiful pictures! I was just there 2 weeks ago. I feel that there is more history to everything there then anyone person will ever fully know.
