Short history of

Temple of Concord

In 367 BC a law was passed granting equal political rights to patricians and plebeians. This event marked the end of the conflict between the two orders and, according to tradition, Furius Camillus decided to commemorate it by dedicating a temple to Concord. It is highly probable, however, that the actual work on the temple did not begin until a long time later, at the end of the following century. It was a hexastyle temple, in the Corinthian order, with a single cella, wide and not very deep.

The temple was located near the Forum, at the base of the Capitol, and was restored the first time in 121 BC, after the murder of Gaius Gracchus and then by Tiberius who had installed in the temple, like in a museum, an entire collection of Greek sculpture of the Hellenistic age. The Senate sometimes met in the temple, Cicero read one of his orations against Catiline here, and Sejanus was condemned to death here.
