The Magnificent Age: Art, Life and Baroque

When Martin Luther published his 95 theses in 1517, it was not only a challenge to the perceived corruption of the Catholic Church, it was an act which prompted the transformation of the religious, socio-political, and artistic landscape of Europe.


One of the most dynamic styles to emerge in the wake of the Counter-Reformation, the Baroque lasted a century and manifested differently in Italy, Spain, and France, where it produced the most extraordinary artists and architects including Caravaggio, Bernini, Velasquez, Poussin, and Borromini.

Pastimes: Theatre, Ballet and Opera

In this lecture we will see that whilst the Baroque style with its illusionism and drama was in itself theatrical, the theatre, popular with the aristocracy and general public, was a showcase for elaborate productions. Opera was new. It was also used as another means of self-promotion and control, particularly at the court of Louis XIV.
