Summary
This program marks the beginning of Michael Wood's quest as he ventures into the world of an exotic and mysterious woman of power. Immortalized in the Hebrew Bible, the Muslim Koran, and in many Christian traditions, the tale of the Queen's journey to meet King Solomon has been told and retold for nearly 3,000 years. Wood's fascinating voyage starts on Easter night in Jerusalem, taking him around the Red Sea to Egypt, Eritrea, and Ethiopia, and to the lost world of Axum. He discovers the legend has been told with variant detail: in Africa, she is black-and a woman of power; in Arabia, she's half-woman, half-demon. "But the tale of her transformations-from exotic and mysterious alien to eternal female; from fantasy mother and lover to cloven-footed demon,"Woods notes, "is a parable of so many women of power throughout history."
