Extreme Pilgrim

An excerpt from the BBC’s Extreme Pilgrim :Ascetic Christianity is on YouTube.

Pete travels to the Egyptian desert to follow in the footsteps of the Christian hermit and founder of monasticism St Anthony. His trek to the desert culminates in a long spell alone in a cave in the wilderness.

Archaeoastronomy has a post about the programme and particularly this final episode.

This episode was about Coptic Christianity and especially Saint Anthony who created the first monastery.
