This in-depth look at the life and times of St. Nicholas takes you to beautiful Mediterranean locations where Nicholas actually lived. Experts tell about new historical and scientific analysis. Some of the most widely known St. Nicholas stories are told along with others less well known. Through it all the true story of a third century Christian man named Nicholas emerges, a man known for his generosity and concern for the poor. Bishop Nicholas stood for truth at a critical time in Church history and he profoundly affected the people in his community. This is a man who may actually be more interesting than the many legends that have grown up around him.
