A documentary series investigating some of the most famous religious art in history is now available online and on demand.
Much of this art was created in a period where many were illiterate. It was used as a primary medium to convey understanding about God.
Masterstroke takes an in depth look at iconic art works such as Rembrandt’s The Return of the Prodigal Son and Van Gogh’s The Raising of Lazarus, and analyses the artists’ motivations behind creating them.
“Much of this art was created in a period where many were illiterate. It was used as a primary medium to convey understanding about God,” said Neale Schofield, CEO of Adventist Media Network and host of Masterstroke.
Mr Schofield says the series also serves as a “springboard to delve into spiritual themes”. Topics discussed in the first few episodes include “a picture of God”, “what are you worth” and the “lost and found”.
Masterstroke airs on Fridays at 7.30pm on HopeChannel. To watch the series on demand, visit <www.hopechannel.com>.
