The Face: Jesus in Art 2x52

Jesus Christ is arguably one of the most pivotal individuals in all of history. Certainly no single figure has had a greater influence on global art and culture during the last 2000 years. For centuries, the most important artists were painting and sculpting images of Jesus, and their work has had immeasurable influence on the world’s aesthetic today. The Face: Jesus in Art is a two-hour documentary that traces the dramatically different ways in which Jesus has been represented in art by people throughout history and around the world. An unprecedented widescreen travelogue of art and monuments from the early 3rd century to the present, The Face: Jesus in Art takes viewers from ancient Rome to 20th century America, from Europe to the Middle East, to illuminate the most beautiful and spectacular representations of Jesus and his stories.
