The Catholic Church is in crisis mode as it looks to solve the clergy sex abuse scandals. It's become a global problem. But art historian Elizabeth Lev, a provocative and intellectually gifted academic professor based in Rome, has a solution: Art. It's what helped keep the faith alive following the Protestant Reformation more than 500 years ago. And many experts are drawing parallels between then and now. We discuss her amazing book, "How Catholic Art Saved the Faith: The Triumph of Beauty and Truth in Counter Reformation Art."  The title is a mouthful, but Lev breaks it down for the untrained mind, and makes art history sound like an action film. Some of the incredible works Lev discusses and includes in her book are:
The Ecstasy of St. Teresa by Gian Lorenzo Bernini
The Entombment of Christ by Caravaggio
