Bonus Interview: Baird Brutscher

Starting next time, the final part of Kells: the Gospel of Columba. We expect the last episode to post on January 22, 2023.

A Miracle in Baghdad

Cellach and Dairach arrive at last at what seems the end of the world: Baghdad. Can the mighty Harun al Rachid, a king greater than Charlemagne, provide the lapis lazuli they’ve sought for so long? Cellach encounters one of his own fellow Scots in the greatest surprise of his life.

Lost in the Desert

Cellach and Dairac leave Rome. The goal of their journey is to obtain lapis lazuli to make the bright blue paint needed to use for the robes in a portrait of Holy Mary for the great Gospel. So they press on to go to the source beyond the sea and through the desert.
