Central Dome


This photo accentutes two of the four pendentives that form the support system for the dome.
Traditionally, the four triangular pendentives feature the four evangelists.

North transept.
Note the pendentives that allow a round dome to be built on a recgtangular base.
Because of the pendentives it is not necessary to use a round building, like the Pantheon in Rome, to support the round dome.

One of  the four evangelists depicted on the pendentives.
