內容簡介

《SPQR》作者、世界著名古典學權威教授瑪麗‧畢爾德新作
同名紀錄片於BBC播出

  繼廣受好評的古羅馬史著作《SPQR》後,劍橋大學古典學教授、知名作家及節目主持人瑪麗‧畢爾德,帶來講述「文明」的全新著作。

  「文明」的概念一直以來存在著爭論,其中最核心的問題,是從古至今的人類如何看待和描述自身、他人,與其他物種。從距今約一萬年前的傑里柯頭骨、令人驚嘆的Ain Ghazal人形塑像、埃及巨像,為其後西方人形塑像的發展奠定了基石的古希臘藝術,到中國的兵馬俑、真身佛像等,畢爾德在本書中探索了藝術演進的過程,深入挖掘眾多的藝術形式、藝術與宗教的關係,以及不同人們觀賞這些藝術的方式。

  BBC同名紀錄片由畢爾德、西蒙‧夏瑪、David Olusoga共同主持,是1969年由肯尼斯,克拉克主持的同名紀錄片開播後,暌違近50年,再度推出的藝術史、古典史紀錄片節目,廣受矚目與期待。(文/博客來編譯)

  Companion to the major new BBC documentary series CIVILISATIONS, presented by Mary Beard, David Olusoga and Simon Schama
  
  The idea of ’civilisation’ has always been debated, even fought over. At the heart of those debates lies the big question of how people - from prehistory to the present day - have depicted themselves and others, both human and divine. Distinguished historian Mary Beard explores how art has shaped, and been shaped by, the people who created it. How have we looked at these images? Why have they sometimes been so contentious?
  
  In Part One, she examines how the human figure was portrayed in some of the earliest art in the world - from the gigantic stone heads carved by the Olmec of Central America to the statues and pottery of the ancient Greeks to the terracotta army of the first emperor of China. And she explains how one particular version of representing the human body, which goes back to the ancient world, still influences (and sometimes distorts) how people in the West see their own culture and that of others. Throughout this story, she is concerned not only with the artists who made images, but with those who have used them, viewed them and inter¬preted them. In other words: How Do We Look?

  In Part Two, Mary Beard turns to the relationship between art and religion. For centuries, religion has inspired art: from the Hindu temple at Angkor Wat to the Christian mosaics of Ravenna to the exquisite calligraphy of Islamic mosques. But making the divine visible in the human world has never been simple. All religions have wrestled with idolatry and iconoclasm, destroying art as well as creating it - and asking how to look with The Eye of Faith.
  
  Review
  
  Praise for Mary Beard: What she says is always powerful and interesting (Guardian)
  
  An irrepressible enthusiast with a refreshing disregard for convention (Financial Times)
  
  If they’d had Mary Beard on their side back then, the Romans would still have their empire (Daily Mail)
  
  [She] implicitly invites us to think about our own world, and about our answers to the question of what makes us human (Sydney Morning Herald)
  
  With such a champion as Beard to debunk and popularise, the future of the study of classics is assured (Daily Telegraph)
  
  Praise for SPQR: Fast-moving, exciting, psychologically acute, warmly sceptical (Bryan Appleyard Sunday Times)
  
  Vastly engaging … a tremendously enjoyable and scholarly read (Natalie Haynes Observer)
  
  Sustaining the energy that such a topic demands for more than 600 pages, while providing a coherent answer to the question of why Rome expanded so spectacularly, is hugely ambitious. Beard succeeds triumphantly … full of insights and delights … SPQR is consistently enlivened by Beard’s eye for detail and her excellent sense of humour (Sunday Times)
  
  Masterful … This is exemplary popular history, engaging but never dumbed down, providing both the grand sweep and the intimate details that bring the distant past vividly to life (Economist)
  
  Ground-breaking … invigorating … revolutionary … a whole new approach to ancient history (Thomas Hodgkinson Spectator)
