From the publisher's website: "Narrated by Mel Gibson, Stacy Keach, Ricardo Montalban, Patricia Neal and others, this Emmy-winning program traces the dramatically different ways in which Jesus has been represented in art by people throughout history and around the world. Spanning the early 3rd century to the present, and featuring some of the greatest works in the history of art, this sweeping program is an unprecedented travelogue of art and monuments. State-of-the-art digital technology virtually reconstructs precious works that were destroyed or lost."

From the publisher's website: "Narrated by Jane Seymour with dramatic readings by James Keach, this moving program takes viewers on an artistic journey spanning almost 2,000 years and crossing four continents. It visits museums, chapels & cathedrals to view rare and sacred masterpieces by such artists as Michelangelo, Rembrandt, Caravaggio and Duccio in their original locations. These treasured artworks reveal the artist's expression of their personal devotion, and are an enduring testament to Mary as the sublime embodiment of the virtues of the human race."
