Lerin's Abbey On St. Honorat's Island (1910)
(USA) Kleine Optical Company
To students of religious history, this spot has a particular poignant history, for as early as the year 410 A.D. Saint Honoratus built this monastic home and from it sent forth laborers to western and southern Gaul to become the leading missionaries of their day among the masses of heathendom in the neighborhood of Lyons and Nice.

Students of religious history should be interested in this since it illustrated the place where St. Honoratus built his monastic home in 410 A.D., and went forth to labor in Western and Southern Gaul. He and his followers were the leading missionaries of their time. The interest in the film centers principally in its pictorial qualities, which are of a high order. One always feels satisfied when seeing a film of this character that the operator was an artist and selected his view points after careful consideration of the artistic requirements of the scenes. Gaumont's outdoor pictures, particularly the reproduction of scenic splendors of this type, have an artistic quality not surpassed. One views them with pleasure and profit.
