Join Legatus and Dr. Liz Lev in France!
Follow the footsteps of the Benedictines at Cluny and Citeaux, and visit the shrine at Paray-le-Monial where the Sacred Heart appeared to Margaret Mary Alacoque, igniting that world-wide devotion. See some the greatest churches of the Romanesque era, the Cathedral of Autun and Vezelay, the site of Mary Magdalen’s burial. This extraordinary architectural period, with its virtuoso stone carving and powerful presence, was the Catholic church’s earliest expression of a global style. Led by art historian Liz Lev and theologian Thomas Williams on this special journey, you can enjoy their expertise as certified sommeliers in this renowned region of France, known for its glorious wines. This very special tour explores the deep Christian roots of wine and the fruit of Christ’s first miracle, drawing together art, spirituality and a mini-course in learning to taste and appreciate some of the finest wines on Earth.
