Pantheon
The Pantheon, literally means all gods, was originally dedicated to every gods in ancient Roman time. Though the idea of having one church to worship all gods seems questionable, some people suspected that the building was surrounded by many gods’ statues and thus the name. Other people suggested that the building itself, the dome looks like the path to heaven. It does not sound like a proper name of the building but there was no other records of the naming of this basilica. Anyway, the Pantheon remained pagan until Emperor Phocas gave the Pantheon to Pope Boniface Iv in 609 and the Pantheon is Christianized. The Pantheon Basilica is dedicated to St. Mary and Martyrs since then.
