The problem of designing spaces with religious, or other strongly sugestive character, was faced by major artists
and architects in all epochs. For example, in the Renaissance, Alberti, Brunelleschi, Leonardo, Raphael, Michelangelo and many others, faced the problem how to invent and to test new principles for the temples of Christianity. These principles were partially based on the ancient Roman and Greek prototypes and partially on the new demands of Christianity. In the 20th century architects like F. L. Wright, Gaudi, Le Corbusier, Aalto, Saarinen and many others, introduced new concepts of religious architecture, in an effort to inspire and move the imagination and the sensibility of the modern people. Again, their ideas were based partially on traditional schemes of the past, and partially on newly emerged concepts.
