The Sultan and the Saint
April 23, 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The film depicts the efforts of Saint Francis of Assisi who risked his life to walk across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler Al-Malik al-Kamil. This remarkable encounter, and the commitment to peace of the two men behind it, sucked the venom out of the Crusades and changed the relationship between Muslims and Christians for the better.
