  13. 13. Origin of the Basilica<br />Old Roman Basilicas were re-designed: They were public buildings originally located in the Forum and used for government business <br />After the first centuries, the worshippers of Christianity grew and became more accepted. Before then, the early Christians met in the homes of the wealthier followers and other locations.When the Emperor Constantine converted to Christianity, it became the State religion, larger places of worship were built in both the Western and Eastern Empires. The older Roman basilicas were redesigned to become churches.The first plans called for a long, brick building with a wooden roof. At the front of the structure was an atrium or a courtyard with a covered walkway around it. Entrances were at the corners in the back of the structure. The nave or central part of the basilica was for worship. It was flanked by side aisles, separated by a row of columns. Windows were located above the columns which flooded the room with light. The apse was a semi-circular area in front of the nave. It was covered with a half-dome. The altar was placed in the center of the apse and always had a canopy or baldachin over it. The altar was made of carved wood or stone. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Basilica<br />
