It brings a new understanding of art because it shows the social and cultural basis of major works of art through history. The ten sections are Ancient Near East- Egyptian- Aegean- Greek- Etruscan- Roman- early Christian, Byzantine, and Islamic- early Medieval- Romanesque- and Gothic. The readings have been drawn from many areas of intellectual and social history, including religion, philosophy, literature, science, economics, and law.

Each selection is preceded by an introductory note, which discusses the readings in terms of its subject and theme, its source and usage, and its relevance to the study of the work of art.
