The Jesuits had another very large church in Rome: S. Ignazio. Its construction had gone on for a very long time, with the Jesuits asking for the advice of too many architects. The design of S. Ignazio included a dome at the intersection between the main nave and the transept, but at a certain point the Jesuits realized that the dome was no longer consistent with the already built parts of the church. As an interim solution they asked a Jesuit painter, Andrea Pozzo to cover the ceiling above the intersection between nave and transept with an apparent dome. The illusionistic effect reached by Pozzo was so satisfactory that S. Ignazio never got a dome and Pozzo was commissioned the decoration of the main nave.
Pozzo was expected to show again his illusionistic skills and he fully met these expectations. The entablature of the cornice, i.e. the framing of the ceiling among painted columns and architraves was not unusual, but Pozzo designed a sort of open ancient temple framing the sky with a myriad of figures, including allegories of the four continents. The subject of the painting - St. Ignatius' glory - is just a scene at the center of the ceiling.
