Set in 7th Century Europe Brother Morvran, a monk at the Laune Monastery in Ireland who saw his family slaughtered by the Saxons receives a summons from Father Columbanus to go to the Abbey of... More > Luxcuil in France, in order to prepare for a special mission. Columbanus is about to found a monastery at Bobbio, in order to convert the Lombards from the Arian heresy, and Morvran expects that he will accompany him to Lombardy. Instead, he discovers to his horror that he is to be sent into the Thuringian Forest to work among the pagan Germans. He is to be accompanied by two inexperienced monks, Brothers Segius and Petri, both of whom, like himself, are fluent German speakers. Morvran pleads with Columbanus not to send him, as those to whom he will be ministering are of the same race as those who killed his family and enslaved him, but Columbanus sees the mission as a test of Morvran's faith and insists that he go into the German forest where he will confront Kragan, the tribal chieftain and Morvran’s nemesis.< Less
