Everybody knows the story of Santa Claus, the red–suited figure who lives at the North Pole and distributes gifts to good children every Christmas Eve. But is there any historical evidence about the real man on which this jolly old character is based?

Travel with distinguished historian Mark Wilson as he journeys not to the North Pole, but to modern day Turkey and Italy. Here the important story of Nicholas, a third-century Christian bishop, emerges from folklore. Saint Nicholas: The Real Story unveils the portrait of a courageous man of God, who stood for truth at a critical time in Church history and who profoundly impacted the culture in which he lived.

We will watch a documentary (duration 55 minutes) that we can discuss after
