8:10 PM Posted In , Edit This 4 Comments »
Rome was (and still is) one of the greatest cities in the world. The famous saying "Rome Was Not Built In A Day" reveals the greatness and splendor of Rome. Their are many places of architectural and historical significance in Rome.

Dan Brown's Angels and Demons sheds light on some of these important monuments. Although the story is the product of author's imagination, the places and monuments described in the novel actually exists.

Here we take a look at the "Four Altars Of Science" as described in the novel.

They are:

1.Habakkuk and the Angel:

According to the novel, Habakkuk and the Angel is the first altar of science situated inside Chigi Chapel. It is a tribute to "Earth" one of the 4 fundamental elements.

2. West Ponente:

According to the novel, West Ponente is the next altar of science situated at Saint Peter's Square. It is the tribute to the second fundamental element "Air".

3. The Ecstacy Of St. Theresa:

According to the novel, the Ecstacy Of St. Theresa is the next altar of science situated inside Santa Maria della Vittoria. It is a tribute to the third fundamental element "Fire".

4. The Fountain Of Four Rivers:

According to the novel, the Fountain Of Four Rivers is the last altar of science. It is situated at Piazza Navona. It is a tribute to fourth and final fundamental element "Water".

Apart from these, there are various other historical places of interest depicted in the book, which will be explored later.

Da Vinci Code was more popular, but Angels and Demons should be a lot more exciting.

I already love the developing mystery that has started to be uncovered here.

This should get exciting.
