Ancient Persians believed the ideal place for paradise is through a gate to unspoiled nature where one’s soul is guided by Mithraist ideals (Ancient Persianni religion that was practiced by the Romans). One can easily observe the resemblance of the church’s gate to the paradisal Gate which is well over 7000 years old. Usually, this design is accompanied by the two vertical columns and supplemented by the lights in between the columns to guide one’s soul, which within ancient Persianni philosophy we are fighting evil every day through the dark and lightness.
