6 one-hour programs, hosted by best-selling author Bruce Feiler, that take American viewers on some of the most celebrated, challenging and spectacular religious pilgrimages in the world. Each hour follows modern pilgrims on their Journeys of Faith – on the Hajj to Mecca, in the footsteps of Moses and Jesus in the Israel, to the Kumbh Mela in India, Lourdes in France, Shikoku in Japan, and the Osun Osogbo Festival in Nigeria. They are taking part in the same profound and moving sacred journeys that people have taken for hundreds, often thousands of years. Each is a compelling journey that reveals powerful emotional stories, ancient religious traditions, and breathtaking locations across four continents. Leo Eaton is Series Director for WGBH in Boston. Coming to PBS in December, 2014.
