Still image from Ye Gods

Part of the "This Is Civilization" series. Considers the debt Western civilization owes to paganism, Christianity, and Islam by showing how each religion has influenced the other and how the art of all three continues to exert an effect on the world. Matthew Collings points out the common humanity underlying three significantly different worldviews by highlighting the lifelike sculptures of ancient Greece, the primitive daubs in Roman catacombs, shimmering Byzantine mosaics, Renaissance crucifixion scenes, and the dazzling arabesques of Egyptian, Turkish, and Spanish mosques. NOTE: Includes some graphic nude images. Accessibility options on the DVD are: (1) expanded description, (2) English subtitles in a black box.
