This chapter talks about a religious symbol and the accompanying rituals, which caused vigorous debate within a society that had nevertheless venerated for many centuries. The hall of the Curia is adorned with an altar upon which stands a statue of Victory personified, collectively referred to as the Altar of Victory.

The Christians were not opposed to the Altar of Victory being present in the Senate building. The chapter focuses on the contention surrounding the Altar of Victory in relation to the presence of the crucifix in the Salon Bleu at the National Assembly of Quebec. The controversy over the Altar of Victory was the result of a battle between two religious paradigms. The veneration of the crucifix is an obligation similar to that of the Altar of Victory for the Roman senators.
