God in the Painted Caves: Prehistoric Art & the Quest for Meaning from Regent Audio on Vimeo.

It’s an extraordinary thing to descend deep underground through dark and narrow passageways and stand in front of an image that was painted during the Ice Age. Tens of thousands of years before the dawn of what we think of as civilization—the building of the pyramids in Egypt, the flowering of philosophy in Greece—someone was busy here creating a stunning work of art. In this session we’ll explore some of the amazing paintings and carvings made by our ancient ancestors and consider the extent to which, from the very beginning, art and the religious quest went hand in hand.
