Periods covered include the Ancient Near East, Ancient Egyptian, Aegean, Early Greek, Etruscan, Roman, Medieval & Islamic, Early Christian & Byzantine, Romanesque, Gothic, Proto-Renaissance, Early/High Italian Renaissance, Northern Renaissance, and Baroque. Two additional chapters cover modern works and non-Western artwork.

With The Master and His Apprentices, you will literally SEE how art, archeology, and the Bible line up in this fascinating exploration of people, places, world events, and the incredible art that remains for us to enjoy!
