Format
Video; Streaming Video; Online
Summary
"Recommended. There is some great footage of the voyage and the numerous memorials that still survive; also the viewer becomes a member of the crew and recreates the daily landings, discoveries, and trials of the participants." -EMRO Review A stunning epic, re-tracing the steps of the intrepid voyage to India in the late 15th century by the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama. His task: to sail from Mossel Bay around Africa, past the Cape of Good Hope, to Mozambique and up to Calcutta, establishing trading posts wherever possible and attempting to convert Muslims to Christianity. His Voyage of Discovery marked the beginning of the colonial era in the Orient and the new "Sea Age." We also learn of his two successive voyages; and how, though the impact of the Portuguese is prevalent in India today, many Muslim people there do not revere the explorer.
