|Contents:||Tape 1 (60 min.). Canon Martin Shaw joins over 30,000 pilgrims on a trek up Croagh Patrick, Ireland's holy mountain, to discover the source of their devotion to St. Patrick. The path of the first Island soldier, St. Columba, is traced from Ireland to Iona Island, the "cradle of Christianity," along with St. Aidan's path to Lindisfarne, where Martin speaks with best-selling Celtic prayer book author, David Adam --
Tape 2 (60 min.). In Ireland, Martin joins pilgrims at Patrick's Purgatory in Donegal, where devotees fast and remain sleepless to honor their saint. He visits the birthplace of Wales' patron saint, St. David, and the cathedral built on the site of the saint's first monastery. St. Samson's path to Caldey Island leads to the current home of the Cistercian order of monks. The influence of women in the Celtic church is examined, and visits are made to the monastic remains at Glendalough and Clonmacnoise in Ireland.
