The Sultan and the Saint
Thursday September 28, 2017
In the year 1219, Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler and scholar Sultan Malik al-Kamil. This remarkable encounter between Christian preacher and Muslim ruler effectively smashed the strategy of dehumanizing the enemy in the Crusades and forged new hope for peace.
