Interior design of cult buildings has suffered transformations along antiquity which origin are, not only participation of society in sacred rites, but also different cultural traditions on space that happened during the primitive stages of the age. The Parthenon - Athens S V a C - was built as Athena's house and in her honor, not born to be looked around from inside but as a supreme offer; aesthetical and rational conception of its space imposes exterior magnificence and proportional perfection. The Pantheon - Rome S II d C - represents a symbol of roman constructive project, that takes Greek formal vocabulary, combining it with its own constructive tradition based on the expansion of interior space and transforming architectonical elements into design rudiments. The first Saint Peter - Rome 324 d C - is an example of monumental building thought to house new Christian community, which space distribution is developed in only one direction and subordinated to the altar.
