Summary:After a stormy voyage across the Mediterranean Brother Felix and his band of pilgrims finally arrive in the Holy Land and set up a base in Jerusalem. Their aim was to visit all the holiest places in Christendom - Bethlehem, the Holy Sepulchre, the River Jordan - and to collect indulgencies saving themselves years in purgatory. Ahead lay the great final expedition through the deserts and mountains to Sinai. In his inimitable style Brother Felix takes us on a personal tour of Mount of Olives and the backstreets of Jerusalem, but all the time he is secretly planning for his final great adventure - the expedition to St Catherine's Monastery in Sinai.
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.
