The Death of Socrates – Jacques Louis David

dav_soc

‘The Death of Socrates,’ by Jacques Louis David – just one of hundreds of examples of great art used by historian Scott Powell in his ‘History Through Art’ programme.

Learn to see history in a new way by combining  the abstract lessons of history with the visual power of art!

Head here to the ‘History Through Art’ website to learn more about the programme, and to sign up.  It’s easy, it’s fun, and you can do it from home.  The next programme starts September 2nd.

Throw out your preconceptions about history as a dry, academic subject, and embrace a world of inspirational insights and values.

There’s no better way to learn history.

An example of a real "martyr" and one who actually was a benefactor
of civilization.

I'm thinking of paying for this - but does he give you hard copy? I don't have an MP3 and don't intend to get one.

Also how objective is he - your previous posts on his history course suggest he may have wingnut sympathies.
