Seton Hill University, Westmoreland Library Network, the Consortium for Educational Resources on Islamic Studies, and the Westmoreland YWCA present The Sultan and the Saint, a docudrama film about peacemaking during the crusades.
During the Crusades, Saint Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking 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.
This event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required. Reserve your spot today.
