FRANCIS AND THE SULTAN:
A HIDDEN STORY,
AN URGENT MESSAGE

This program will focus on the uncommon vision that motivated Francis of Assisi to make contact with the leader of the Muslim forces, Sultan al-Kamil, during the brutal battles of the Fifth Crusade. That remarkable encounter deepened and expanded Francis’ vision and actions for the remainder of his life. Why was this story “covered up” for centuries? What possibilities for new behaviors and attitudes might come of delving into this story? Join us to explore the story and address the questions!
