1 Hour Documentary | Nat Geo, Arte

For centuries the Holy Foreskin was the most sacred relic in Christendom, the only piece of Jesus’ flesh to remain on earth after He ascended to heaven. Believing it had miraculous powers, pilgrims flocked from all over Europe to worship; for them the Holy Foreskin was the real Holy Grail. Then, on New Year’s Day 1983, in a tiny village in the Roman countryside, Father Don Dario announced to his expectant flock that their beloved relic had been stolen. New York Times writer David Farley goes on a quest to solve this mysterious crime and unravel a Vatican conspiracy.
