Mont Saint-Michel Abbey: Journey back into the Middle Ages on this audio tour
Join me for this self-guided audio tour inside the Mont Saint-Michel Abbey back to a simpler time. A time when the monks of the Abbey lived their lives according to the scriptures and the ebb and flow of the seasons. The way this Benedictine abbey was constructed over centuries, on a remote rock facing the sea, reveals what spirituality could inspire back then. Mont Saint-Michel Abbey is breathtaking to behold and fascinating to explore. But it’s complicated and confusing too. I’ll guide you up and down its intricate stairways through hidden doors, and into halls and dungeons that’ll take you back to the Middle Ages. With this audio guide, you'll find out: • How books were written before computers and the printing press • How heavy stones were transported before the invention of engines • Why monks don't have BBQs • The truth behind the daily life of clergy in feudal society • What links jet-setters and kings PLEASE NOTE: This tour does not include entrance into the Abbey.
