Documentary filmmaker Robin D. Williams narrates his film, Biblical Treasures of Turkey, as part of the Elmer Herr Adventure Series on Saturday, October 20 at 7:30 p.m.
Biblical Treasures of Turkey graphically and beautifully showcases the Byzantine Empire and cities visited by the apostles Paul and John. The film opens in ancient Constantinople and highlights the conquest of the city by the Turkish Sultan Mohomet in 1453. An impressive survey of an exotic land, the film also includes visits to Nicaea, to the fortress monastery of Sumela, and to Antioch, where the first church of the Christians is still visible in a huge mountainside cave. Not merely educational, Biblical Treasures of Turkey brings a world of pirates and conquerors, emperors and crusaders to life.
