Pagans And Pilgrims - S1 Ep6 - Caves
Caves - This week, Ifor sets out to understand what happens when our religious urges drive us underground. His first stop is Lud’s Church in Derbyshire, one of the most dramatic and eerie holy paces in the land, it was once described as “the place for the Devil to say matins”. He then heads back 14,000 years to find evidence of perhaps the oldest holy place in Britain. He follows in the footsteps of St Cuthbert’s body as it was shifted between caves in the north of England to escaped the attentions of Viking raiders, and he visits a cave in St Govan where a hermit was miraculously enveloped in rock to evade local gangs of wreckers. He meets a nun in Norwich who tells him all about a young woman who was bricked up alive for over 40 years in an act of almost unbelievable devotion and finally heads to a crypt of Ripon cathedral ro discover one of the most dramatic pieces of religious theatre in Britian.
