Summary:The journey south from Jerusalem was fraught with danger - the hostile landscape of the Dead Sea, packs of wolves, bandits, towering mountains and endless desert with searing temperatures and no maps. It was no journey for the faint hearted. Faith and fortitude were essential qualities. All his life Brother Felix h ad dreamt of the day he would touch the bones of his Virgin Daint and he was determined to survive. This last programme follows his dramatic adventure through what was once the most inaccessible land of the Middle East and finally the evocative moments at St Catherine's monetary.
Description:Three half hour programmes which recreate the pilgrimage of Brother Felix Faber,a Dominican Friar from Ulm in Southern Germany,to the Holy Land in the 15th Century.
