    Question a question about an idiom

    My doubt is the translation, I mean, the correspoding word in Brazilian Portuguese for:

    the scarcest of good fortune - in the sentence:
    As we shall see later on, Christian civilization in Africa would survive this crisis only through the scarcest of good fortune.
