The 11th century saw calamities, famine, and war. The literate clergy interpreted these events as confirmation of the predictions in St. John's Book of Revelation. This program depicts this tumultuous time by dramatizing the life of Ademar de Chabannes, a monk who wrote a remarkable chronicle of the early years of the millennium. Through his eyes the whole range of 11th-century life can be seen, with all its hysteria, religious zeal, and visions of Apocalypse. Though a low point in Europe's history, the year 1000 also heralds a continuous rise that would produce Gothic cathedrals, a rebirth of the arts and sciences, and the transformation of a terrifying God into a more human one.
