What brings about creative episodes in humanity’s journey across the ages? Throughout history the world has seen remarkable periods of extensive learning and cultural refinement inspired by religious renewal and spirituality. Each religious civilization can be viewed in seasonal terms—going through a spiritual spring, summer, autumn and winter.
We will take an eagle-eyed look at several spiritual summers, renaissances and golden ages: Israel’s United Monarchy, classical Persia, Athens and Alexandria, Gupta India, Tang China, Christian Byzantium and Islamic Persia. We’ll go on to share futuristic glimpses of a possible global civilization. This stimulating survey will cast light on humanity’s continued quest for a constructive breakthrough today.
