Cadfael 3 | 1997
Adaptation of the novels of Ellis Peters about a 12th century, crime-solving Welsh monk, Brother Cadfael. In "The Raven in the Foregate," a new parish priest incites the ill-will of his parishioners when he refuses to grant a young woman absolution because she is pregnant out of wedlock. When the woman and the priest are found dead, Cadfael investigates. In "The Rose Rent," murder hits close to home when a young love-struck monk is found bludgeoned to death. In "A Morbid Taste For Bones," Abbot Radulfus is convinced by the Abbey prior that the bones of a little-known Welsh saint should be returned to the Abbey, leading to strong reactions from the owner of the land where the bones currently lie.
