In this episode of the highly acclaimed PBS series Connections, host and author James Burke takes the medieval word "filioque" and weaves a wide range of topics around it. For science students who may not care for history, and vice versa, the programs are eye-openers, for Burke continually finds interrelationships within the two subjects. In Connections 2: One Word, he discusses a Venetian painter, the Renaissance, the intolerance of the Catholic Church, James Watt, the Industrial Revolution, Sanskrit, the brothers Grimm, and asteroid belts.
