Magnificent photography and narration. Bet there will be much in here you did not know about especially the connection to why a German is doing a Celtic movie. I am not Catholic or Feminist. I am a Reformed Presbyterian in doctrine and practice but all of Vision Video's Celtic videos are so well done for church history. This German series told me about Irish monk travels to Europe that I did not know about. Buy them both and the whole set of Memorable Leaders you will watch them over and over again.
