Pete Owen Jones explores the
spiritual traditions of Africa
as his journey continues

Pete Owen Jones continues his year-long religious odyssey with a gruelling journey exploring the spiritual traditions of Africa.


In the third episode of this series, Pete sets off hoping to get a glimpse of man's first experience of the divine. His journey begins with the ancient practice of Voodoo in Benin, where Pete is confronted by ritual practices that contradict his own, deeply held, religious convictions. He is forced to decide whether he should even take part.


On the continent where all human life began, Pete travels to Botswana to meet the San Bushmen, inheritors of the earliest religious faith on Earth. In South Africa, he discovers surprising new developments in religious belief when he meets the members of the 12th Apostolic Church, and is stunned to find Afrikaners who believe the world is about to come to an end.


In Ethiopia, he finds a group of one of the world's youngest religions – Rastafarians – who have set up a Utopian community in this harsh and unforgiving land. His journey reaches its emotional conclusion in the highlands of northern Ethiopia, where members of Africa's oldest Christian church have gathered in an ancient rock-hewn church to pray, as they have prayed for almost 2,000 years.
