This beautiful program explores the origins of several great hymns of the Christian faith, which are traditionally ascribed to the period stemming from the first century through the Protestant Reformation. It gives a panoramic overview of Church history, while examining the lives and legacies of the figures commonly associated with these hymns, and evaluating their influence in bringing them into being. The four hymns highlighted are Be Thou My Vision , All Creatures of Our God and King , O Sacred Head Now Wounded , and A Mighty Fortress is Our God.
Be Thou My Vision- After the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 410 AD, one region which was ripe for spiritual harvest was the kingdom of Great Britain. By God's providence, it was in Ireland that this harvest would first occur, through the bold and faithful missionary efforts of a man named Patrick.
O Sacred Head Now Wounded- As much of early monasticism became marked by extravagance and corruption, cries for reformation arose from within certain monastic circles. One of the great figures of this reforming movement was Bernard, the founder and leader of the Cistercian monastery in Clairvaux, France.
All Creatures of Our God and King- During the Middle Ages, monastic orders known as the mendicants arose that relied exclusively on charity for support of their work. Francis of Assisi and the mendicant order he founded, voluntarily followed the way of poverty as a means of self-discipline, and of ministering to the poor around them.
A Mighty Fortress is Our God- Cries for reformation became fervent and frequent in the 14th and 15th centuries. The champion appointed by God to establish the roots of the reformation was a German monk named Martin Luther.
