  Bernini's Baldachin - Rome-Tourism your online guide to Rome
This enormous, bronze baldachin (a part of which was originally in the Pantheon) measures 29 metres in height and covers the most sacred section of the church, the legendary, final resting place of Saint Peter.
The baldachin covers the main altar, and the most eye-catching elements are the two, spiral columns that support it.
The baldachin is crowned by a globe that is encircled by the Barberini family's coat of arms.

  Architectural symbolism and the decoration of the Ste.-Chapelle. - Encyclopedia.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-29)
A container made entirely of precious metals and gems, the grande chasse was exhibited at the east end of the chapel on a platform enclosed by an elevated baldachin, which was supported by a tribune screen consisting of three arches flanking the central structure.
As it appears in the seventeenth-century drawing, the tribune screen was set within the apsidal bay of the upper chapel affixed to the north and south walls at the pier adjoining the apse to the nave proper.
Within such a context, the tribune and baldachin should be understood not merely as decorative scaffolding for the grande chasse but rather as a Gothic version of the porch of Solomon.

 The Church of Saint-François-de-Sales de Neuville
The baldachin in the church in Neuville is one of the masterpieces of Québec's past artistic heritage.
On the one hand it bears witness to the church being a place which favours artistic expression, and on the other, it is one of the rare examples dating back to the French regime, which has survived to this day.
The baldachin of Neuville is of a baroque style and was inspired by that of Val-de-Grâce, in Paris, created in 1666 by le Bernin, a prestigious Italian sculptor.

  Bernini and the Art of Architecture
The baldachin form inspired a new marker over the high altar, which was again built of impermanent materials, on a massive scale, over Saint Peter's tomb.
The baldachin over the tomb is documented at Saint Peter's from 1606, shortly after the decision to enlarge the nave was taken.
The appearance of the baldachin is recorded in representations that commemorate the canonizations of Francesca Romana (1608) and Carlo Borromeo (plate 19).
