Must be reissued on DVD! ;was on 5 VHS tapes

Not only was Helmut Griem excellent as Wiederkund, but Lino Capolicchio excels as "little" Pope Leo III !

When I originally saw this in 1994, I right-away saw in Capolicchio as "little Leo", our Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger...who is now of course our Pope Benedict XVI....Incredible, but that was my first impression!!!

Dark Aeges, HAH! Seeing this will make you yearn to know more about Fr.Alcuin of York (played by Frank Finlay), the greatness of "Karl derGrosse" (Christian Brendel) and the tragedy of Roland (Xavier duLac). It shows the conversion of the Germanic Tribes, their humility, and the splendour of European history. Beautifully acted, beautifully written, and inspirationally Catholic!

You will take the whole "epic" to heart indeed!
