After 48 years of hesitations, a contest organized to finish the huge building project initiated in 1296 by Arnolfo del Cambio and enlarged by Francesco Talenti on the site of the old church of set the Dome of Florence in a new direction.In Florence, everybody was familiar with the final sea-urchin-like shape of the dome, because since 1367 a scale model had been exhibited to the public in one of the side aisles of the growing cathedral.With a diameter of 42.2 m, its width is nearly the equivalent of the Roman Pantheon (43.4 m) and only slightly surpassed by the Paris grain market (44 m) of 1765. The dome’s realization, seen as impossible at its time, is associated with the name of one man, Filippo Brunelleschi (1377-1446) (Figure 1), a man to whom is attributed the invention of linear perspective.Neither Rome’s Saint Peter’s basilica (42 m), nor Paris’ dome of the Invalids (27.5 m), nor London’s Saint Paul’s cathedral (30.7 m), nor even the Washington, D. Deceased in 1446, Brunelleschi saw neither the realization of the lantern he conceived, since only finished in 1471, nor the 2.5 m–wide bronze sphere put on top of it by the workshop that trained Leonardo da Vinci, the workshop of Andrea del Verrocchio.The Grove Church of Christ in Grove, Oklahoma seeks a full-time minister who passionately desires to preach, teach and equip the members for service to God.We are a congregation of 80 members with a very nice modern building who are strongly committed to grow.Another architect, Leon Battista Alberti (1404-1472), in the prologue of his treatise on perspective, “Which man, whatever harsh or jealous, would not praise Filippo when seeing this enormous construction rise to the heavens, so vast that it could cover all the people of Tuscany with its shadow, and executed without the aid of beams or wooden struts.” As we will see in this article, this great building site, challenging all of human knowledge at that epoch, was the locomotive provoking a scientific and technological revolution.Raising the great dome drew new horizons, which far beyond the construction of a building sent ripples and shockwaves of philosophical optimism to the great benefit of future generations.
