book written about the Pantheon
The Pantheon was a temple to worship all of the Roman gods. There was a huge hole in the middle of the pantheon called an oculus. The oculus was built to let light in through the center of the building. Inside the pantheon there were many alters for different gods. The Romans would place flowers, money, food, and precious items on the alters for the gods. The pantheon was the largest structure made from entirely concrete. The pantheon was important because the Romans needed a place to worship their gods. If they didn't worship their gods they believed that they wouldn't have a good afterlife.
