Product Description:

This entry in PBS's SECRETS OF THE DEAD series investigates the conflict between Michelangelo's commitment to the Catholic Church as a commissioned artist and his personal religious beliefs. The episode examines Michelangelo's affiliation with secretive, reform-seeking groups and offers a smart analysis of his highly expressive masterpieces.

Product Description:

Throughout his masterful career, Michelangelo glorified the church, etching Catholic ideals into the sculptures and artwork that defined religion for the masses. Now, 500 years after his death, art historian Antonio Forcellino has found evidence of Michelangelo's involvement with a clandestine fellowship trying to reform the Catholic Church from within.  The group's radical ideas and accusations of corruption were considered heretical and punishable by death. Michelangelo's involvement put him at dangerous odds with powerful officials who held his livelihood - and life - in their hands.  "Michelangelo Revealed" paints a stunning new picture of brave religious expression, personal vendettas, careful cover-ups and a most gifted artist desperately trying to reconcile his loyalty to the church with his own personal belief about the road to salvation.
