We’re leaving continental Europe to travel to Britain and Ireland. These two islands experienced less interaction with the Roman Empire and so their path to Christianity looks different than places inside the empire’s boundaries. We’ll talk about how Christianity became popular in both places, share the stories about their most famous heroes (hint: one of them has one of the most popular saint’s days in the world), and explore the unique parts of their practice and tradition. And as wandering Irish monks leave Ireland to travel around Europe, we’ll find some threads that bring us back to other episodes this season.
