(March 27, 2014) While masterful works of art have been studied and appreciated for centuries, only a few modern students have discovered the secret messages they conceal. Hosts Clare and William Henry explore the hidden mysteries in the world’s greatest works of art to find surprising revelations about human potential, modern science and religious significance in the exclusive new series “Arcanum.”

Arcanum, the Latin term for a profound secret known only to initiates, is the apt title of this fascinating program. Episode one begins with a look into an ancient artifact known as the Philosopher’s Stone, followed by the second episode on the hidden meanings in the paintings of 15th century Flemish Renaissance artist Jan van Eyck.

“Symbolism having to do with immortality and resurrection can be seen in countless paintings, sculptures and in music,” said William Henry who co-hosts the series with his wife, author Clare Henry. “These were controversial concepts for their time, which is why artists had to be clever and mysterious with their depictions.”
