Public Screening of "The Sultan and the Saint" Tuesday, February 11 at 6:30 PM
“The Sultan and the Saint” tells one of the great, lost stories from history. Set in a past period of East-West conflict, it speaks with urgency to our present. Two men of faith, one an itinerant Christian preacher, the other the ruler of a Muslim Empire, bucked a century of war, distrust, and insidious propaganda in a search for mutual respect and common ground.
This is the story of Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt, and their meeting on a bloody battlefield during the period of Christian-Muslim conflict known as the Crusades. Two more unlikely protagonists are hard to imagine. And yet this remarkable encounter, and the commitment to peace of the two men behind it, changed history at a crossroads moment.
The film is 1 hour long and there will be a time for small group discussion afterwards.
