Art historian Sir Kenneth Clark presents an epic examination of Western European culture, defining what he considers to be the crucial phases of its development. The Skin of Our Teeth: Traveling from Byzantine Ravenna to the Celtic Hebrides, from the Norway of the Vikings to Charlemagne's chapel at Aachen, Lord Clark illuminates the Dark Ages, the six centuries following the collapse of the Roman Empire (AD400 to AD1000). The Great Thaw: The sudden reawakening of European civilization in the 12th Century is traced, from the first manifestations at the Abbey of Cluny to its high point -- the building of the cathedral at Chartres. Romance and Reality: Lord Clark journeys from a chateau on the Loire, through the hills of Tuscany and Umbria, to the cathedral baptistry at Pisa, as he explores the aspirations and achievements of the Gothic world of the later Middle Ages in France and Italy. Man: the Measure of All Things: Lord Clark visits Florence, where European thought enjoyed new impetus by rediscovery of its classical past. He also journeys to the palaces at Urbino and Mantua, centers of Renaissance civilization. The Hero as Artist: Papal Rome in the 16th Century, where Christianity and antiquity begin to converge, provides the focus for this look at Michelangelo, Raphael, and da Vinci. Join Lord Clark as he explores the courtyards of the Vatican, the rooms decorated for the Pope by Raphael, and the Sistine Chapel. Protest and Communication: Lord Clark explores the Reformation, travelling through the Germany of Albrecht Dürer and Martin Luther, the world of Erasmus, the France of Montaigne, and visiting Shakespeare's England in the reign of Tudor Queen Elizabeth I. Grandeur and Obedience: Lord Clark visits the Rome of the Counter-Reformation, when Michelangelo, Bernini and Giacomo della Porta produced their masterpieces. The Catholic Church, in its fight against the Protestant North, developed a new splendor symbolized by the glory of St Peter's. The Light of Experience: The telescope and microscope revealed new worlds in space and in a drop of water. The realism found in Dutch painting took the observation of human character to a new stage of development. The Pursuit of Happiness: The harmonious flow and complex symmetry of 18th-century music -- the compositions of Bach, Handel, Haydn and Mozart -- are reflected in the best rococo architecture of that period, as seen in the churches and palaces of Bavaria. The Smile of Reason: Polite talk in the elegant salons of 18th-century Paris became the precursor of revolutionary politics. This theme takes Lord Clark from the great European palaces, such as Blenheim and Versailles, to Jefferson's Monticello. The Worship of Nature: The belief in the divinity of nature usurped Christianity's position as the chief creative force in Western civilization, ushering in the Romantic movement. Examining this force, Lord Clark takes us to Tintern Abbey, the Swiss Alps, and the landscapes of Turner and Constable. The Fallacies of Hope: The French Revolution led to the dictatorship of Napoleon and the dreary bureaucracies of the 19th Century. The disillusionment of the Romantic artists is traced through the music of Beethoven, the poetry of Byron, the paintings of Delacroix, and the sculptures of Rodin. Heroic Materialism: Lord Clark's thoughts on the materialism and humanitarianism of the past 100 years take him from the English industrial landscape of the 19th century to the towering skyscrapers of New York City in the 20th
